For decades, rumors circulated in Russia that Joseph Stalin had a "twin" who took his place during certain situations. Decades after Stalin's death, Noah finally decided to speak up.

 

Felix Dadaev, a former dancer and juggler, was ordered to work in the Kremlin as Stalin's body double. For more than half a century, Dadaev remained silent, fearing the death penalty he dared to open his mouth.

 

But in 2008, at the age of 88, and with clear acceptance of the Putin regime, he finally came forward to write his autobiography. It states that he was one of the four men employed to impersonate the Supreme Leader, taking his place in motorcycles, at rallies, on newsreel footage, etc.

 

Dadaev was born in the Caucasian Highlands of Dagestan and began taking ballet lessons when his family moved to Grozny in Chechnya.
