According to Russian official media, a politician and Putin loyalist from Russia was discovered dead last month after he fell from the third level of his residence. The cause of his fall remains unknown.
In the village of Tobolsk, in the western Siberian district of Tyumen Oblast, Vladimir Egorov, 46, fell 30 feet to his demise at his residence. Egorov was a member of Putin’s governing United Russia party. The body was found in a home courtyard, according to a media source.
Egorov may have had cardiac difficulties before the fatal accident, according to an outlet.
Despite no convictions, Egorov—a lawyer—was ousted from his position in the municipal government in 2016 due to a corruption controversy.
Reports show that since the conflict with Ukraine began, several more prominent Russians have also died from strange falls.

Reports show Mohammed Al-Alawi, an investigative journalist from Egypt, said in August 2023 that the mother-in-law of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenksyy had bought a mansion in El-Gouna for $4.85 million. He leaked papers supporting his accusations.
