In Tobolsk, central Russia, a member of the ruling United Russia party, Vladimir Egorov, was found dead after allegedly falling from a third-floor window. This incident adds to the mysterious deaths of Russian elites, raising concerns about potential foul play within the country’s political circles.
Local media reported on Thursday that Egorov’s body was discovered in a courtyard outside his home. According to a Russian news agency, he fell from the third-floor window of his house, but the Investigative Committee for the Tyumen region stated that there were no external signs of criminal death on his body. An autopsy is underway to determine the circumstances surrounding Egorov’s death.
The Tobolsk City Duma published an obituary stating that Egorov died “as a result of an accident” and praised him for his support of the participants of the Special Military Operation and the families of military personnel fighting in Ukraine. This incident marks the latest in a series of mysterious deaths within Vladimir Putin’s inner circle since the beginning of the war in Ukraine.
In another similar incident, Anna Tsavera, the deputy editor-in-chief of Komsomolskaya Pravda, was found dead in her Moscow apartment. Her sudden death follows that of her boss, Vladimir Sungorkin, who died during a business trip in September 2022. Additionally, Ravil Maganov, the chairman of Russia’s second-biggest oil and gas company, died in a tragic fall from a hospital window in Moscow in September of the previous year.
Egorov’s death adds to the growing list of unexplained deaths among Russian elites, casting a shadow of suspicion over the country’s political landscape. The increasing number of such incidents has raised concerns about potential foul play and the safety of those in prominent positions within Russia. The circumstances surrounding these deaths point to a need for thorough investigations to ensure transparency and justice for the families of the deceased.
