Russian Lukoil chief Ravil Maganov dies after “falling from hospital window” 

According to sources, Ravil Maganov, the chairman of Russia’s largest oil company, Lukoil, passed away after falling from a Moscow hospital window. 

According to Russian media, he passed away from his wounds while receiving treatment at the Central Clinical Hospital in Moscow. 

Maganov is the most recent in a line of prominent corporate leaders to pass away suddenly.

Investigating police stated that they were attempting to determine how he passed away at the spot. According to sources published by Tass news agency, he died by suicide after initially reporting that he had fallen out of a window on the sixth story early on Thursday morning. 

The Lukoil board expressed their support for the victims of “this catastrophe” and demanded that the violence end as quickly as possible after Russia invaded Ukraine.

Vagit Alekperov, its millionaire president, resigned in April after the UK slapped penalties against him in retaliation for the invasion. 

In recent months, a number of Russian energy oligarchs have perished in peculiar circumstances:

Along with his wife and children, the body of rich former manager of Novatek Sergei Protosenya was discovered in a Spanish mansion in April. 

Vladislav Avayev, a former vice president of Gazprombank, was discovered dead in their Moscow apartment with his wife and kid in April. 

Former Lukoil tycoon Alexander Subbotin passed away in May from heart failure, purportedly after obtaining complementary medical care from a shaman.

Russia’s largest private firm is Lukoil. It said in its statement that Maganov’s skill as a manager was the reason it had grown to become one of the biggest energy companies in the world. 

He joined the private oil company in 1993 and assumed the chairmanship two years later. President Vladimir Putin presented him with a lifetime achievement award three years ago.

Maganov was receiving medical care at a hospital on the western outskirts of Moscow that is well renowned for treating members of Russia’s political and corporate elite. 

President Putin paid a visit to the Central Clinical Hospital on Thursday morning to lay flowers by Mikhail Gorbachev’s casket after learning of his death on Tuesday.
