Russian oil oligarchs falling to unexplained deaths

Top Russian executive Ivan Pechorin died after falling from his boat near Vladivostok. Pechorin is the latest in a long string of unexpected deaths. In February, the same firm announced the death of its general director, Igor Nosov. The 43-year-old died of a stroke. On Sept 1, state media reported the death of Ravik Maganov, chair of top Russian oil company Lukoil, saying he fell from a hospital window. Four deaths are linked to Russian state-owned energy giant Gazprom. At least 8 top men connected to Russia's oil and gas industry have died in 2022 so far, many reportedly 'by suicide'.
