The future assassin of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, defected in 1959 in the Soviet Union for ideological reasons, could not be allowed to leave the USSR, if he was not an agent of the Kremlin. This was written in the column for «Radio Liberty» Russian publicist and political analyst Andrei Piontkovsky.
«With a very strong effort of imagination I can imagine that the noble gentlemen from the KGB… make American all the documents necessary for departure to the country’s main potential enemy. Instead of having to issue long prison sentence, for example, charged with hooliganism. Or not to keep the guy from car accident…. After all, Stalin was already the time, and liberal Khrushchev thaw… During the execution of demonstration of workers in Novocherkassk in 1962 the same year he was killed only 26 people and seven then deprived of life by the sentence of the court,» he said.
The expert stressed that can not believe that the wife of Oswald, «a Komsomol member, an athlete, a student-zaochnitsa, editorial production» Marina Prusakova would be released from the Soviet Union just because her husband is disillusioned «in the great ideals of socialism.»
«None of us, Soviet people, who lived in the USSR in 1962, would never believe it: the couple Oswald could safely leave the Soviet Union only in one capacity – as a recruited intelligence agents of the Kremlin», – said the publicist.
He added that no accident in the USSR was afraid of the us missile strike after the assassination of the President of the United States, as described in declassified report of the FBI agent.
«President Kennedy, in my opinion, was killed by a Soviet agent… the Assassination contributed to the astonishing negligence of employees of the U.S. intelligence bordering on a conscious or subconscious desire not to interfere with the possible crime. These circumstances, apparently, was clear and investigating circumstances of crimes the Commission of Earl Warren, and American political leadership. But the public recognition of this fact still remains to US authorities politically inexpedient,» – said Piontkovsky.
