Another Putin Ally Dead After ‘Suffocating’ On A Business Trip

This week, another Putin ally dead after ‘suffocating’ on a business trip. This time, the cause of death was allegedly a "stroke," which happened while the individual was conducting business in the town of Roshchino in Russia's far east area.

Vladimir Nikolayevich Sungorkin, who was 68 years old, served as the editor-in-chief of the Komsomolskaya Pravda, the Russian official newspaper. The publication reports that Sungorkin passed away "suddenly" on Wednesday after exhibiting signs of "suffocation" while traveling on Wednesday.

The Death Of Putin's Ally

His colleague Leonid Zakharov, who had joined him on the business trip, wrote in an article for KP that everything went swimmingly while they were away:

It happened absolutely suddenly, nothing foreshadowed. We were in the village of Roshchino. We were driving, we were already making our way towards Khabarovsk, we planned to get there in the evening today, and from there to Moscow. All was good.

Zakharov claims that minutes after suggesting to their group that they "find a beautiful place somewhere... for lunch," Sungorkin passed out and did not make a full recovery. The other person wrote:

Three minutes later, Vladimir began to suffocate. We took him out for fresh air, he was already unconscious… Nothing helped. The doctor who did the initial examination said that apparently, it was a stroke. But this is the initial conclusion.

This month has seen a number of high-profile individuals close to Putin die under suspicious circumstances, including Sungorkin. Ivan Pechorin, aviation director for Russia's the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation, was reportedly found dead in Vladivostok after allegedly "falling from a boat," as stated by local Russian media agencies. Pechorin's death was the most recent report of a fatality in Russia.

A strange boating accident caused the death of Putin's man in the Far East. Since its inception, the Komsomolskaya Pravda has maintained its reputation as a resolutely pro-Kremlin publication.

Putin's Honoring Of Legendary Komsomolka

In a statement congratulating the newspaper on the occasion of the 95th anniversary of the publication of its first issue in 2020, Russian President Vladimir Putin said:

The legendary Komsomolka has traveled a long creative path over these years and has written brilliant unforgettable pages in the history of the Russian media.

Putin's words were included in the statement in which Putin extended his best wishes to the newspaper. It is essential that the current team of the newspaper pass on these traditions from one generation to the next in order to ensure that the newspaper continues to have its flagship position in the media business in Russia.

In an obituary for Sungorkin, the staff of Komsomolskaya Pravda wrote that the journalist had come from humble beginnings before building the newspaper up into "a mighty empire."

They referred to him as "a symbol of the new national journalism." Sungorkin passed away earlier this year at the age of 86.
