    Did Putin poison Yeltsin

    This is an interesting theory that floats around on Russian internet, and has for years. Now been coming up in conversations again, what with the Skripal thing and all that.

    It is true: Yeltsin liked to drink, really liked to drink, like too many Russian men



    and when he got wasted, he could act like a total fool


    an embarrassing decade that was, for many Russians... Many now think it was one of the lowest points in their history (same folks who admire fucking STALIN now, btw lol)

    Anyway, but, he was NOT an unhealthy man, though, Yeltsin, dude played tennis recreationally, for God's sake

    That's an intense, high-energy sport, we are talking about, this isn't, you know, golf, or something. Tennis takes a certain level of physical fitness...

    Yet, by New Year night 1999/2000, when Yeltsin basically abdicated in front of the nation, on TV, in his New Year address, declaring Putin, then PM, as his endorsed successor, who then promptly appeared in his place with his own own address, he was already a wreck

    look at him, barely even able to talk.

    I have heard rumours that his health began to deteriorate especially after August 1999, exactly after Putin, then director of the FSB, the new KGB, took over as PM. Putin wanted the top chair. And this was a man, IMHO, who would do whatever it takes to achieve his goal. Even have his people poison the current Prez. And then, perhaps, blackmail him into resigning, if he wants the antidote...

    Yeltsin would, eventually, die from supposed heart failure in 2007. His whole extended family received immunity, after his resignation, for all the illegal shit he did while in office. Stick and carrot, basically...

    I am not the only one who think this, there are folks, back in Russia, who feel there was an actual coup, back in 1999, by the KGB old guard, to put their own man in charge. Putin, of course, was that man...

    I thought this photo was amusing, and actually kind of endearing, and when I saw the video, it inspired me to start writing a surf-rock song titled Boris Did The Twist!

    But I never got around to finishing it, ha ha!

    And, P.S. Wouldn't surprise me a bit if Putin murdered Yeltsin. The man is a murdering bastard. I almost immediately believed your theory when I just now first heard it. Thanks.

    He was quite a character, Yeltsin was... Many now blame him for a lot of crap back then, the poverty and everything... But they forget what the price of oil was like back then, vs. in early 2000s, when Putin took over. Putin has a lot more money coming in, to work with... Though, Yeltsin certainly was an incompetent drunk, in many ways. The First, 1994, War in Chechnya is one huge example of his blunders...

    I absolutely can see it. This is a ruthless guy who, in own words, had actually DREAMT and ASPIRED to be a fucking KGB agent, since he was a kid. Who, while working for Governor Sobchak in St. Petersburg in the 90s, basically got all the mafia factions there to do his bidding.

    Who has killed anyone who got in his way to the top, with no remorse. Even a former mobster friend from Petersburg, in 2004, two years before Litvinenko, that guy was also poisoned with Polonium, because he'd started talking too much about what Putin did there, in Piter, back in the 90s...

    Putin is capable of anything, IMHO
