Ravil Maganov passed away Thursday after falling out of a six-story window while in a hospital dubbed “Kremlin’s Clinic” says Russian media.
Maganov was 67 years old and chairman of Russia’s second-largest oil producer, LUKOIL. He was found dead when he suddenly fell from a sixth-floor window while at Moscow’s Central Clinical Hospital, reported by Interfax news agency.
The media reports say he was being treated for a heart condition at the ‘Kremlin Clinic’ as it treats the country’s elite. They also noted that he complained about suffering from depression.
This isn’t the first death suffered at the hospital this week, former Soviet Leader, Mikhail Gorbachev passed earlier this week.
Maganov is the second executive from LUKOIL to die mysteriously since spring. Back in May, the police started an investigation into the death of Alexander Subbotin who died of a suspected heart attack in the basement of a house in a room that a source state is “used for Jamaican voodoo rituals”.
Back in March, the board of directors for LUKOIL published a statement sharing their opposition to the war in Ukraine, “Calling for the soonest termination of the armed conflict, we express our sincere empathy for all victims, who are affected by this tragedy. We strongly support a lasting ceasefire and a settlement of problems through serious negotiations and diplomacy.”
A press release shared by LUKOIL on Maganov’s death was released on Thursday and it didn’t mention his cause of passing but instead praised him for all his efforts within the firm.
“We deeply regret to announce that Ravil Maganov, Chairman of PJSC LUKOIL Board of Directors, passed away following a severe illness.
“Ravil Maganov immensely contributed to the development of not only the Company, but of the entire Russian oil and gas sector. For his successes in the development of Russian fuel and energy sector, Ravil Maganov received many national awards. LUKOIL’s many thousands of employees mourn deeply for this grievous loss and express their sincere condolences to Ravil Maganov’s family.”
