KGB general who signed protocol of Stalin’s death left mysterious trophy in old piano
The granddaughter of the general found a bundle with a war trophy.
In Moscow, they made an amazing find in an old piano.
In the dusting musical instrument, a trophy of the KGB general, the one who signed the protocol of the death of Joseph Stalin, was found.
Telegram channels have already named this artifact "a riddle with half a century of history."
The piano has become a “vault” for 60 years for the secret of Major General Ivan Kuperin. He acquired the musical instrument after the war, when he settled on Yauzsky Boulevard and became the deputy head of the treating department of the KGB.
In 2019, the granddaughter of General, Taisia, lifted the lid of the family heirloom left from the grandfather and saw the bundle, which she had not known before. Inside there was a rare Hungarian FEG 37M in a holster, and the cartridges to it. Such guns were in the army of the Third Reich.
None of the relatives knew about the general's trophy cache.
Now historians have to figure out how the gun got to Kuperin.
