Alexei Navalny may have been killed by a punch to the heart, a technique once learned by Soviet secret service agents.

Vladimir Osechkin, the founder of the human rights group Gulag.net, which is informed by a wide network of Russian prisoners and officials, told The Times that he believed Russian authorities kept Navalny in the cold before execute him with one punch.

The activist cited as evidence comments from a source who worked at the Arctic Circle detention center where Navalny died, who said there were bruises on his body when he died, consistent with the technique.
