Russian oligarch suicide


A Russian oligarch linked to Gazprom is found dead in the swimming pool of his St. Petersburg mansion, it looks like an accident

Russian billionaire and businessman Yuri Voronov, 61, has been found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in the last few hours. Voronov had been head of a logistics company that had major contracts with Russia’s state-owned Gazprom in the Arctic. The businessman was found dead in his home in a wealthy St. Petersburg neighborhood. His body was found floating in the pool of his mansion with a gunshot wound and near a Slovak Grand Power pistol.

For now he is the sixth Russian oligarch to die in mysterious circumstances since the beginning of the year. Some of the deceased had links to Gazprom. In fact two of them died in the same St. Petersburg neighborhood as Voronov.

According to the first investigations, the billionaire’s wife told investigators that her husband believed that contractors and some partners were swindling him out of “a lot of money.” However, several deaths of well-known businessmen in other mansions near St. Petersburg have fueled rumors that the murders were “staged” to look like suicides.

One of the latest oligarchs to die was Alexander Subbotin, who had been a manager of the large private Russian oil company Lukoil and later became the owner of New Transport Company (NTK) on the shores of the Gulf of Finland. The millionaire turned up dead in the house of the shaman Aleksei Pindyurin, also known as “Shaman Magua”, in Mytishchi, northwest of Moscow.

In late June, Vadim Zimin, 53, a retired former Russian security officer, was found in his home wounded with a gun. Zimin was once in charge of President Vladimir Putin’s briefcase containing nuclear codes. The Kyiv Post newspaper reported that the retired colonel died days after his brother found him lying on the floor of his home in the Russian city of Krasnogorsk, near Moscow.
Zimin was found “in a pool of blood” after he allegedly suffered a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Zimin was a retired colonel of the Federal Security Service (FSB), Russia’s main security agency, who has been photographed with Putin while wearing the Russian leader’s “Cheget “.
