The death of the dictator Vladimir Putin in the Russian Federation will not be concealed, and it is likely to follow a similar scenario as with the former leader Joseph Stalin, said a military and political analyst of the Information Resistance group Oleksandr Kovalenko to RBC-Ukraine.

"If Putin dies while still in power, there will initially be an information vacuum. Then suddenly everyone will find out that the leader has passed away, and they will arrange a grandiose funeral and share power. This will be a relatively light situation, similar to what happened with Stalin," Kovalenko stated.

According to the official version, Stalin was found paralyzed on March 1, 1953, at his dacha after a cerebral hemorrhage. The next day, an official meeting of the Presidium of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was held in his office, attended even by formally expelled members, signaling upcoming changes.

On the morning of March 4, the newspapers carried the first reports of Stalin's illness, though proposals for a new composition of the top leadership of the USSR were already prepared. The date of death is considered to be March 5, as it was announced on the radio the next morning.
