"Russian oil executive and Putin critic Ravil Maganov dead after mysterious six-story fall" - The New York Post

Recommended Posts


Since the Ukraine war, more than 7 fatal accidents and suicides of very important people in Russia have occurred, with many of them tied to the Oil and Gas industry.

Americans are familiar with how accidents can happen in the Oil industry.  Take the case of Aubrey McClendon, one of the founders of Chesapeake Energy.  On March 1, 2016, McClendon was indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiring "to rig bids for the purchase of oil and natural gas leases in northwest Oklahoma".  A grand jury indictment means that a criminal trial will follow, and of course Aubrey McClendon had co-conspirators.  He never had the opportunity of a plea deal to name co-conspirators with the Feds, because he died the following day, March 2, 2016, in a single-vehicle fiery crash into a cement wall of a bridge without applying the brakes of his SUV while traveling at a high rate of speed on his routine mid-morning route that sunny Spring day.  Such are “Crashes of Convenience” Michael Hastings style, like U.S. Counterterrorism Czar Richard Clark explains with the use of remote control technology.

For us in the West who are aware, fatal accidents and suicides of important people are extraordinarily common.  People know about Gary Webb, Terrance Yeakey, the DC Madam, Dr. David Kelly, Danny Casolaro, Jeffrey Epstein, a host of Bankers, Vince Foster with the Clinton Body Count, and more.


Russian oil executive and Putin critic Ravil Maganov dead after mysterious six-story fall

September 1, 2022 2:32pm
One less constant critic for Vladimir Putin.
Ravil Maganov, 67, chief executive of Russian private oil giant Lukoil — and a Ukraine war opponent — died in a six-story plunge from a Moscow hospital window.
The death Thursday was reported as a suicide by Russian state media, which noted the oil company’s board chairman had been hospitalized for a heart attack and was taking anti-depressants.
In a statement, Lukoil said Maganov died following a “long illness,” according to the English-language Moscow Times.
But two people who knew the businessman well told Reuters it was highly unlikely Maganov took his own life.
The oil titan is one of several Russian energy execs to die suddenly and under murky circumstances since the war in Ukraine began.
Another top Lukoil manager, Alexander Subbotin, was found dead in the basement of a house outside Moscow in May — the same month Vladislav Avayev, a former executive at Gazprombank, was discovered fatally shot beside his wife and daughter.

A month prior, Sergei Protosenya — a former honcho at liquefied natural gas producer Novatek — was found dead beside his wife and daughter in Spain. Russian authorities claim he beat the pair to death with an ax before hanging himself. Spanish media reported no suicide note and no bloodstains on his body.
Alexander Tyulakov, a Gazprom exec, was found dead in his garage the day after Russia invaded Ukraine in February.
Lukoil, where Maganov had worked since 1993 — rising with the company as it grew out of the collapse of the Soviet Union — was unusual among the Russian oligarch class for consistently criticizing the war in Ukraine.

In a March 3 statement, the Lukoil board called the invasion of Ukraine “tragic” and called for negotiations to bring about the “soonest possible end to armed conflict.”

Another Russian Energy Exec Found Dead, 'Fell Overboard' Boat At Full Speed

Another one bites the dust...

Less than two weeks since Ravil Maganov, the vice president and chair of the board of directors of Russian oil giant Lukoil, died after falling out of a sixth floor hospital window in Moscow, another Russian energy executive has been found dead in mysterious circumstances.

39-year-old Ivan Pechorin, managing director of Putin's Far East and Arctic Development Corporation, fell off the side of a boat while sailing in the waters close to Russky Island near Cape Ignatiev, according to Russian daily Komsomolskaya Pravda.



For two days, rescuers searched for a man at sea near the coastline - unfortunately, he was found dead.

"On September 12, 2022, it became known about the tragic death of our colleague, Managing Director for the Aviation Industry of the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation Ivan Pechorin. Ivan's death is an irreparable loss for friends and colleagues, a great loss for the corporation," representatives of the Development Corporation said.

According to The Mirror's Russia correspondent, he was personally selected by Putin for his role, and was described by Newsweek as Putin's "key man" in the region. 

Interestingly, Pechorin's death comes just months after the corporation's former CEO Igor Nosov, 43, also died suddenly in February, reportedly from a stroke.

Pechorin's death is the latest in a string of unexplained or untimely deaths of Russian magnates connected to the energy industry in the last months.

In the old days of the Soviet Union, Stalin's suspected critics, some very close to Stalin, died mysteriously, sometimes on the operating table while undergoing minor operations. Clumsy medicine.
