A Soviet poster dealing with the supposed doctor saboteurs affair.

The Doctor's plot (also known as the Doctor's affair) was an alleged plan by some doctors in the Soviet Union during the early 1950s to assassinate various Soviet leaders, including Joseph Stalin. The doctors were mostly based in Moscow and many of those unmasked, were held to have rootless cosmopolitan and Zionist sympathies. After the death of Slain in 1953 (sometimes claimed to have been an assassination), the Soviet Union officially claimed that the case was "fabricated".
