A Russian investigative journalist who wrote about the deaths of mercenaries in Syria has died in hospital after falling from his fifth-floor flat.

Maxim Borodin was found badly injured by neighbours in Yekaterinburg and taken to hospital, where he later died.

Local officials said no suicide note was found but the incident was unlikely to be of a criminal nature.

I hope he was thorough and locked the door to the balcony from the inside, as they usually do in these cases...

yes, of course. People mysteriously fall out of windows all the time. I'm surprised he also didn't accidentally shoot himself in the back 5 times before falling also.

I’m have a cold and rainy Spring, but I guess his Fall was even more unpleasant.

A public execution with just enough deniability to allow Putin’s poodles to continue barking Kremlin talking points. One wonders what that spin will be on this one? I suspect they will impinge the honor of the deceased.

In Russia this passes for ‘natural causes’. That said, we’re not that much better these days.

Would a drunk Russian falling off a balcony be that unusual?

However, a friend revealed Borodin had said his flat had been surrounded by security men a day earlier.

Move along now. Nothing suspicious to see here.

Borodin will be greeted by James Forrestal, who will be smirking and will say,

“It ain’t the fall, it’s the stop.”

Not to mention all those ex spies, who just happen to run into poison gas or eat poison polonium. I sure would hate to be friends with Putin and then get on his wrong side.

There is a new show out called McMafia. A rival gang killed an associate of a Russian mobster by throwing him off his balcony. Czech police ruled a suicide but the mobster re-examined the apartment and found a broken fingernail in the heater register on the floor that came off as he was being dragged to the balcony.
