He Was Killed How?


(GoRealNewsNow.com) – In a gruesome new proposition about how Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny may have perished recently in a penal colony in the Arctic, a human rights activist now claims that he might have been killed with a punch to the heart, a signature assassination move used by the former KGB.

The potential assassination of Alexei Navalny with a single lethal blow to the heart—a method that is emblematically associated with the KGB – is alleged by Vladimir Osechkin, an exiled human rights advocate with access to confidential information.

Osechkin, the founder of the human rights organization Gulagu.net, told the Times of London that Navalny exhibited injuries on his head and chest that align with this specific assassination technique.

Osechkin attributed this information to a confidential informant stationed at the remote “Polar Wolf” penal colony, where 47-year-old Navalny died suddenly, The New York Post reports.

Osechkin highlighted it as a notorious strategy employed by the special forces divisions of the KGB during the Soviet era.

“It is an old method of the KGB’s special forces divisions. They trained their operatives to kill a man with one punch in the heart, in the center of the body. It was a hallmark of the KGB,” the human rights defender said.

He elaborated that Navalny was subjected to the severe, below-freezing temperatures of the Yamalo-Nenets region for an extended period, a tactic intended to weaken him physically.

Osechkin added that this claim is supported by previous accounts from former inmates, who reported similar methods of execution by guards in Arctic penal facilities.

Almost a week after the announcement by Russia’s prison service of Navalny’s sudden collapse, his exact cause of death remains undisclosed.

The explanation provided to his family and legal team, citing “sudden death syndrome,” remains vague.

The Russian authorities’ refusal to release his body for an independent examination, citing the need for a “chemical examination,” has fueled further speculation and accusations, particularly from Navalny’s widow, Yulia.

She has publicly accused the Russian regime, led by President Vladimir Putin, of poisoning Navalny with Novichok—a nerve agent previously used in an attempt on his life in 2020—and attempting to obscure evidence of their involvement in his death.

Osechkin, however, expressed skepticism toward the poisoning theory.

“It’s possible, of course, but when someone is under the control of the prison system, there are many options as to how to kill them. Novichok would leave a trace in his body and would lead directly back to Putin, given he has tried it once before,” he concluded.
