Russian Energy Boss Igor Shkurko Found Dead

Russian energy boss Igor Shkurko was found dead yesterday in his cell at a detention center in Yakutsk, a port city in eastern Siberia.

Another top energy boss in Russia has been found dead in mysterious circumstances – after he was accused of taking a bribe.

The body of Igor Shkurko, 49, deputy general director of Russian energy company Yakutskenergo, was discovered yesterday in his cell in a detention centre in Yakutsk, a port city in eastern Siberia.

The day before his death the executive had submitted appeals against what he claimed was an unjust bribery allegation.

A spate of unexplained deaths of high-ranking energy officials have taken place since the start of Vladimir Putin’s war in Ukraine more than 13 months ago.

The Russian authorities have provided no details on how Shkurko died, but asserted there were no signs of a ‘criminal death’, based on ‘preliminary data’.

His company issued a statement saying: ‘We will remember him as an open, hospitable person with a big heart and a good sense of humour, the caring head of a close-knit family.’

Shkurko, who was a high earner, was accused of demanding a £5,000 bribe. He was a member of the pro-Putin United Russia political party but his membership was suspended when the bribe allegation was made.
