Ravil Maganov: Lukoil chairman dies after falling from a Moscow hospital window

“The man fell out of the sixth-floor window and died as a result of his injuries,” a supply advised TASS.

Lukoil confirmed the dying of its chairman on Thursday in a press release printed on its web site.

Ravil Maganov “passed away following a severe illness,” Lukoil mentioned, making no point out of a fall. “Maganov immensely contributed to the development of not only the company, but of the entire Russian oil and gas sector.”

Lukoil, Russia’s second greatest oil and gasoline firm, made headlines in March when it known as “for the soonest termination of the armed conflict” in Ukraine.

“We express our sincere empathy for all victims, who are affected by this tragedy,” the corporate’s board of administrators mentioned in a press release to shareholders, employees and prospects on the time. “We strongly support a lasting ceasefire and a settlement of problems through serious negotiations and diplomacy.”

The agency produces greater than 2% of the world’s crude oil and employs over 100,000 individuals.

RIA Novosti quoted a legislation enforcement supply Thursday as saying Maganov “most likely committed suicide.”

“Investigating authorities are working on the spot to establish the causes of the incident,” the supply advised RIA.

At the least 5 outstanding Russian businessmen have reportedly died by suicide since late January, in keeping with earlier CNN reporting.
