pResident tRump's ties to Russia have sparked a lot of speculation, investigation by Congress, and an order not to delete records. The intelligence community (which has been on-again/off-again with the tRump "Administration") and the FBI are also investigating the various connections, conversations, interactions, and intrusions with and by various Russian entities. Russia (or maybe even the CIA), for its part, seems to be covering its tracks.

Various Russian diplomats have been literally dropping dead recently. It started last March when former Russian Cabinet Minister Mikhail Lesin was found dead in his hotel room:
The 57-year-old millionaire was found dead the morning of Nov. 5 in his room, lying on the floor. His family told media outlets that the former aide to Russian President Vladi­mir Putin had suffered a heart attack.

But on Thursday, the D.C. Medical Examiner’s Office said Lesin died of blunt force trauma to the head and had bruises on other areas of his body. The examiner reached no conclusion about whether the man who was a trusted member of Putin’s inner circle and once ruled a media empire died because of a crime, an accident or some other means.

Ouch. Fast-forward to election day when tRump was selected elected. Russian diplomat Sergei Krivov also died under strange circumstances:
He was found just before 7 a.m. on Election Day, lying on the floor of the Russian Consulate on the Upper East Side.

The man was unconscious and unresponsive, with an unidentified head wound — “blunt force trauma,” in cop parlance. By the time emergency responders reached him, he was dead.

Initial reports said the nameless man had plunged to his death from the roof of the consulate. As journalists rushed to the scene, consular officials quickly changed the narrative. The anonymous man had not fallen dozens of feet from the roof of the consular building, they said, but rather had suffered a heart attack in the security office, and died.

Because yes - dying of a heart attack generally involves blunt force trauma.

A few months later in Jan 2017, ex-KBG chief Oleg Erovinkin - who likely helped compile the dossier on tRump describing "Golden Shower-gate", died "mysteriously" in the back seat of his car:
An ex-KGB chief suspected of helping the former MI6 spy Christopher Steele to compile his dossier on Donald Trump may have been murdered by the Kremlin and his death covered up. it has been claimed.

Oleg Erovinkin, a former general in the KGB and its successor the FSB, was found dead in the back of his car in Moscow on Boxing Day in mysterious circumstances.

Erovinkin was a key aide to Igor Sechin, a former deputy prime minister and now head of Rosneft, the state-owned oil company, who is repeatedly named in the dossier.
No cause of death has been confirmed and the FSB continues to investigate. Media reports suggested his death was a result of foul play.

It was later claimed he died of a heart attack.

Our final player in this little mystery is Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin who died earlier this week:
Churkin died one day before his 65th birthday. He was known as a deeply intelligent, combative, disarming and humorous fixture at the UN Security Council.

The diplomat suffered from cardiac arrest while at the Russian Mission on East 67th Street, a law enforcement official said. He was taken to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where he died.

Preliminary information suggests there was no foul play in Churkin's death, New York police Lt. Thomas Antonetti said. But authorities are waiting for reports from the New York City medical examiner's office before releasing the official cause of death.

I'm waiting to find out if blunt force trauma was involved here as well. It seems that "heart attacks" accompanied by bruises, cracked skulls, and contusions are an occupational hazard for Russian spooks and diplomats.

Funny, that... After all - dead men tell no tales.
