TOBOLSK, Russia – A pro-Putin politician, Vladimir Egorov, was found dead after falling from a third-floor window in Tobolsk, central Russia. This incident marks the latest in a series of mysterious deaths among Russian elites in strange circumstances.
Local media reported that the regional politician was discovered in a courtyard outside his home. A Russian news agency reported that Egorov fell from the third-floor window of his house. The Investigative Committee for the Tyumen region confirmed the incident and stated that there were no “external signs of criminal death.”

Her boss, Vladimir Sungorkin, 68, died suddenly during a business trip in September 2022.
Another mysterious fate includes Ravil Maganov, the chairman Russia’s second-biggest oil and gas company, who died after falling out of the window of a hospital in Moscow in September last year, according to TASS.
These incidents have raised concerns and suspicions about the circumstances surrounding these deaths and the potential motives behind them. The authorities are still conducting investigations into each case, as the deaths continue to fuel speculation and uncertainty.
