The chairman of Russia’s second-largest oil producer, Ravil Maganov has died after falling from a hospital window in Moscow, according to reports in the country.
Ravil Maganov, who was also a vice president at Lukoil, had openly criticised the war in Ukraine.
The 67-year-old was chair of the company’s board which called for the “soonest termination of the armed conflict” and expressed “sincere empathy for all victims” in March.
The statement continued: “We strongly support a lasting ceasefire and a settlement of problems through serious negotiations and diplomacy.”
Mr Maganov died after falling from a sixth-floor window at the Central Clinical Hospital this morning, according to RBC News in Russia.
Other Russian media outlets and the Reuters news agency, citing unnamed sources, have also said Mr Maganov fell from a window.
