According to media reports, the body of the 35-year-old diplomat was found on the roadside pavement on the morning of 19 October. Prima facie, the death seemed to have been caused by falling from the top floor of the embassy. However, it was not clear why he fell or what was the cause of death.

He was posted in a very high position in the Russian intelligence agency.
