A local politician named Vladimir Egorov, known for supporting Putin, has passed away under suspicious circumstances, possibly due to a fall from the third floor of a house on Kedrovaya Street in Tobolsk, Tyumen Oblast.
Reports from the Russian Telegram channel Baza, linked to security services, indicate that there were no apparent signs of foul play on his body.
His lifeless body was discovered in the yard of his home. Some sources suggest the possibility of heart problems as a contributing factor, a common explanation for untimely or questionable deaths among influential figures in Russia amid the conflict with Ukraine.
Pathologists are set to conduct an autopsy to determine the exact cause of Egorov’s death.
A former city administrator, Egorov faced a corruption scandal in 2016 but was acquitted. Despite this setback, he returned to politics and became the wealthiest local deputy in Tobolsk.
His unexpected demise is now under police investigation to ascertain the circumstances of his fall. Egorov, survived by a wife and two children, is not the only high-ranking figure in Russia whose death, involving a fall from a window, has raised suspicions during the Ukraine conflict.
Earlier in June, Kristina Baikova, a 28-year-old executive at Loko-Bank, reportedly fell to her death from her 11th-floor Moscow apartment.
In February, Marina Yankina, a top Russian defense official, was found dead after falling 160 feet from a tower block window in St Petersburg. These incidents continue to fuel speculations and scrutiny surrounding such tragic events involving influential individuals in Russia.
