The allegations that Lee Harvey Oswald, the killer of John Kennedy, had links with the special services of the USSR are only slanderous claims, said Maria Zakharova, spokesman for Russian diplomacy, in his commentary on Western media publications regarding Russian traces in this tragedy.
Assumptions that the killer of 35th US President John Kennedy, Lee Harvey Oswald, was alleged to have been in contact with the USSR’s special services are only slanderous claims, said spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova commenting on Western media publications that appeared on the eve of the declassification of documents concerning the investigation of this tragedy.
“For decades, this information has been classified. If now, atrocious allegations in the Russian context are even advanced on this subject, it is only regrettable, “said Ms. Zakharova.
“It’s frightening to imagine that this subject can be presented today in this despicable context,” she added.
John Kennedy was killed on November 22, 1963 in Dallas by Lee Harvey Oswald, a sniper. The opinion that he had connections with the Soviet special services was based on the fact that he had lived and worked for some time in Minsk.
