Vladimir Putin’s chauffeur who died in horror smash ‘was assassinated by Western spies to send a violent message to Russian president’
The unidentified man died when a Mercedes veered from the other side of the road, smashing into it head-on
Now unsubstantiated claims posted on a pro-Putin website claim it was carried out by Western spies.
The presidential BMW was travelling on Kutuzovsky Avenue in the Russian capital when a Mercedes veered from the other side of the road, smashing into it head-on.
Putin was not in the car at the time, though Russian media report that the president’s official driver was killed in the crash.
