There are news from the sources that at least 12 Russian officials and their families died since the Ukraine-Russian war began. Well, it is not a new thing we have been hearing it since the first week of February. Now more and more businesses found died either in their house or an office. They are the latest of a series of high-profile Russians to die in mysterious circumstances in recent months.
Former Kremlin official and Gazprombank vice-president Vladislav Avayev, 51, was found dead in his luxury Moscow apartment alongside the bodies of his wife and 13-year-old daughter on Monday.
The following day former Novatek deputy chairman Sergey Protosenya, 55, his wife Natalya, 53, and 18-year-old daughter, Maria, were found dead at their Spanish mansion. No suicide note was found and Protosenya has no track record of domestic violence, according to Spanish news outlet El Punt Avui. Protosenya's wife and child were stabbed to death, though no blood was found on his clothes or person. An axe and knife were found near his body, however.
The deaths of two gas oligarchs, and their families, within two days of each other is likely to raise questions, despite the appearance of murder-suicides. Spanish detectives will be combing through the evidence to establish whether the incidents were tragedies sparked by domestic violence, or whether they had been staged.
Russian oligarchs have been in the news recently following Western sanctions on them over Russia's invasion of Ukraine. It is unclear whether Avayev and Protosenya had been directly impacted themselves.
On February 25, just three days before Watford's death, former Gazprom executive Alexander Tyulyakov, 61, was found hanged in the garage of his apartment building near St. Petersburg. Police told that they found a suicide note next to his body, which led investigators to believe he died by suicide. Tyulyakov's suicide is currently being investigated by Gazprom, whose security units arrived at the scene with police in February.
Like Tyulyakov, Leonid Shulman was a top executive at Gazprom when he was found dead by apparent suicide in January, before Russia had invaded Ukraine.
Shulman, 60, similarly was found next to a note that led police to believe he committed suicide. Shulman's death came just months after a probe into his alleged fraud at Gazprom was opened.
Leonid Shulman, 60, was found dead in the bathroom of his cottage next to an apparent suicide note, according to Novaya Gazeta. In the note, Shulman complained about an unbearable pain in his leg, which he had injured during the New Year's holiday. Shulman reportedly wore an Ilizarov apparatus for the injury, which is used to reshape limb bones.
