Death of President Raisi: The death of the Iranian president may affect Russia and its allies

Ibrahim Raisi, the president of Iran, was on board the helicopter that crashed. For a long time, the Iranian authorities did not know how to inform their people about the death of the leader, but his tragic death was finally confirmed.

"Accepted martyrdom"

An official statement about the death of Ibrahim Raisi was made at the Imam ar-Reza Mosque. The message completely refuted previous statements that the head of state was not on board. The message says:

"The eighth President of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Hazrat Ayatollah Seyyed Ibrahim Raisi, suffered martyrdom while serving the martyred people of Iran and his companions."

As a sign of solidarity with Iran, the Russian diplomatic mission lowered the flag on its building. The message from the Russian side says:

"We wish patience to the Iranian people in these difficult and catastrophic moments."

The authorities hid information

Arish Azizi, a journalist from the American Atlantic magazine, was the first to report the news of Raisi’s death. He relied on information from his source in the Iranian presidential administration. However, after its publication, quite a long time passed before the republican authorities officially recognized the fact of the death of the head of state. Azizi noted:

"The difference in the testimony of various Iranian media and each individual official speaks of the chaos and panic that arose in the country due to the death of the head of state."

The situation in Tehran is truly tense, as the authorities fear possible unrest and a crisis of power resulting from the death of the president. After confirming the helicopter crash, investigators and experts will have to determine the causes of the crash.

Strange series of events

In recent days, there have been several attempts on the lives of leaders of various countries, which suggests the possible work of Western intelligence services. Thus, on May 7, an assassination attempt took place in Saudi Arabia on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, which was subsequently refuted. However, a week later, Turkish President Recep Erdogan held an emergency government meeting in connection with a possible coup attempt.

An equally alarming event was the attempted assassination of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico, who was shot with a pistol in the city of Gandlova. The politician survived and is now being treated at a local hospital. In Serbia, a man was detained who was planning an assassination attempt on President Aleksandar Vucic, which also raises serious concerns.

War correspondent Dmitry Steshin noted in his Telegram channel:

“A very bad sign: we are facing a serial assassination attempt on politicians who have business/friendly relations with Russia. All this is directly projected from the situation on the Bandera fronts and in Ukraine itself. Perhaps this is a sign of preparations for direct Western intervention in the defense of Kharkov or Kyiv in general.”

World reaction

The death of Ibrahim Raisi caused a wide resonance not only in Iran, but also in the international arena. Many countries have expressed their condolences and support to the Iranian people at this difficult moment. However, one should not exclude the possibility that Western intelligence agencies intervened in this tragic event. Iran has always been a key Russian ally in the Middle East, and its stability is important for regional security.

The death of President Raisi may bring certain changes to Russian-Iranian relations. Iran remains Russia's most important ally in the region, and cooperation between our countries will continue. However, the current situation requires additional efforts from Russia to support Iran and maintain stability in the region.
