Did RT founder, former Putin aide Mikhail Lesin leave the US after his death?


The Russian rumor mill churned out a multitude of conspiracy theories with respect to the death of Mikhail Lesin – a prominent media mogul, credited with being one of the founders of RT (formerly known as Russia Today) and a former aide to Russian president Vladimir Putin. Lesin was found dead in his Washington, D.C. hotel room in November 2015. Ironically, RT - the very network he helped to spawn - incorrectly reported that Lesin died of a heart attack. This claim was based on an alleged statement by Lesin’s unnamed family member. It should be noted that his daughter, Ekaterina Lesina, is a bureau chief at RT.
