KGB Threw Hitler’s Ashes in River in 1970

Wow:

The remains of Adolf Hitler were burned in 1970 by Soviet KGB agents and thrown into a river in Germany on direct orders from the spy agency’s chief, a top Russian security official said this week. Andropov’s decision to destroy the remains of the Nazi leaders and their family members was motivated by the fears of the KGB and Soviet Communist Party leadership that Hitler’s burial site could become a place of worship for supporters of fascist ideas.
