Conspiracy theorists have claimed that the car crash involving Vladimir Putin’s official car was actually a botched assassination attempt on the president.
The official BMW used to chauffeur Vladimir Putin was caught in horror smash – leaving one dead.
It has been reported that the victim is one of the Russian president’s favourite driver, who has worked for him during official duties for 40 years.
But the Russian president was not in the car at the time of the accident.
Now, unsubstantiated claims on a pro-Putin website called Millennium Report claim the crash was actually an assassination plot put in place by ‘secret foreign agents’.
At the very least, they believe the collision was meant to send a message to Putin, essentially threatening his life.
The article said that it was “not very often that the head of state of a superpower nation is sent such a dramatic and violent message.
“That appears to have just happened with the killing of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s favourite chauffeur while he was driving the president’s official automobile.”
According to the Daily Star,more comments read: “Such an audacious threat to the life of the President Putin can only be coordinated by an inside group of foreign secret service agents who have proxies operating in Moscow.
Earlier this week, Russian media reported the president’s car – a black BMW – collided with a Mercedes in the country’s capital city, Moscow.
The video shows the vehicles travelling along a multi-lane carriageway, smashing into each other in the head-on crash.
Putin was not believed to be in the vehicle at the time of the collision.
Reports allege that the driver was killed instantly.
Medics arrived on the scene shortly after the crash and transported the driver of the Mercedes to hospital in a critical condition.
Police have confirmed they are investigating the incident but have refused to give any other details.
The car is officially registered to the Federation Council, also known as the Russian Upper Chamber of Parliament.
