The Mystery Of The Real Assasin

There are many assassinations that are cloaked in mystery…was it a lone wolf who was the killer, or was the killer a part of a mass conspiracy that plotted against the victim?...Pyotr Stolypin served as a Prime Minister and was Minister of Internal Affairs for the Russian Empire from the year 1906 to the year 1911...Stolypin was what was called a firm monarchist... Stolypin was famous for his heavy crackdowns on revolutionaries and dissidents…thousands of suspects were given speedy trials and then promptly executed...many were hung and as a result, the nickname ‘Stolypin’s necktie’ was born...Stolypin resigned in March 911 from the Duma after the failure of a land reform bill that he had September of 1911, Stolypin decided to travel to Kiev despite police warnings that an assassination plot was rumored…he was shot twice…once in the arm and once in the chest by a fellow named Dmitry Bogrov, who was said to be a leftist revolutionary…this somehow happened despite the fact that there were about 90 men who were employed as interior guards…it wasn’t the first time an assassination attempt was made on him…in 1906, three assassins wearing military uniforms bombed a public reception that Stolypin was holding on Aptekarsky Island…Stolypin suffered only minor injuries caused by flying splinters, but 28 people were killed…in the last attempt, Stolypin died three days later after being shot while attending an opera…some say this was the first major domino to fall in the downfall of the monarchy six years later…for his trouble, Bogrov was hanged ten days later…oddly, the official investigation ceased without coming to a conclusion…some say this was because the leftists weren’t actually behind it, but that it was conservative monarchists who didn’t like and were afraid of Stolypin’s reforms…most likely, the world will never know the answer to this mystery.
