Russian UN Ambassador Dies Suddenly in New York.
One day before his 65th birthday, Vitaly Churkin, the Russian Ambassador to the UN has died in hospital after suffering “cardiac problems” at the Russian Embassy early in the morning of February 20th.
Details are scarce as the story has just become public but the story from the Daily Express relates that Churkin fell ill at the Russian Embassy at 9am, suffering heart attack type symptoms, and was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital.
Churkin, Russia’s second most senior diplomat behind Foreign Minster Sergei Lavrov, had represented the Russian federation at the UN since 2006. Churkin was a highly capable and pugnacious diplomat who memorably recently declared that Britain should return Gibraltar and the Malvinas (Falkland Islands) among others, before they initiate any discussion about Crimea.

Churkin’s death comes months after Andrei Karlov, Russian Ambassador to Turkey was assassinated in the Turkish capital and also follows the mysterious deaths of senior Russian officials in Beirut, Athens and Moscow along with the bizarre death of one of the Russian Presidents drivers in a car accident that looked artificially engineered.
Whatever the finding is regarding the Churkin death, these events, combined with the McCarthyite hysteria regarding Russia right across the Western media make it clear that elements within the West are determined to provoke violent confrontation with Russia, no matter the cost.
The virulent resistance to the very idea of Trump as President is rooted in the same obsession. President Trump says many foolish things, wastes immense time on complete nonsense and has views that echo (indeed amplify) the establishment group-think on many foreign policy issues, with Israel and Iran being obvious examples.
In addition Trump has handed all the economic portfolios over to the same vultures of Wall Street as Obama and all recent predecessors despite promising to do the opposite.
None of these shortcomings and errors begin to explain the intense barrage of smear and innuendo the Trump administration faces however, as many of the same faults were ignored in previous cases.
It is the failure to toe the line regarding Russia that seemingly negates all else and motivates the attempt to destroy the Trump Presidency before it even begins by the CIA and their media.
It seems that these elements are willing to kill anyone and everyone who stands in the way of their project and poor Vitaly Churkin was merely the latest victim in a prolonged campaign of provocation and terror against Russia by the Shadow Government of the West.
Vitaly Churkin is survived by a wife and two children.
