TOBOLSK, Russian Federation – The body of Vladimir Egorov, a political ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, was discovered on Wednesday, as reported by Russian state media. Egorov, 46, a deputy of the Tobolsk City Duma and a member of Putin’s United Russia party, fell from a third-floor window in Tobolsk, located in the Tyumen Oblast, according to the Russian Telegram channel Baza, known for its ties to Russian security services.
This incident comes amidst a series of mysterious deaths involving prominent Russian figures since President Putin’s forces invaded Ukraine in February of last year. Eyewitnesses reported that Egorov fell from the window, but an autopsy is expected to determine the cause of his death. The Investigative Directorate for the Tyumen region is currently investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Egorov, who had become one of the wealthiest deputies of Tobolsk, leaves behind a wife and two children. He formerly headed the Committee on Land Relations and Forestry in Tobolsk and was involved in a legal dispute regarding the collection of rent from businessmen.
In addition to Egorov, several other prominent Russians have died after falling from windows, raising concerns about the circumstances of these deaths. The timing of Egorov’s death, in the context of the geopolitical tensions in the region, has led to speculation about potential foul play.
Details are still emerging about the tragic death of Egorov and the circumstances surrounding it, but Russian authorities are working to establish the cause of the incident. This development has raised questions about the safety and security of high-profile individuals in Russia and the need for further investigation into these incidents.
