Joseph Stalin dies after ruling the Soviet Union for 29 years. He evidently suffered a severe, paralyzing stroke during the early morning hours of March 1, but wasn't discovered until that night. He couldn't communicate and dies today.

It is possible that Stalin's death is an assassination rather than natural causes. In 1975 Vyacheslav Molotov claims that Lavrentiy Beria bragged "I took him out." In 2003 a group of historians examines the evidence and concludes that Stalin was likely poisoned with warfarin, a rat poison that is odorless and tasteless.
