MOSCOW: Ravil Maganov (chairman of Russia’s second-largest oil producer Lukoil) died today from a fall from a Moscow hospital window, according to Reuters.
Unnamed sources were also cited by Russian media reporting Maganov’s death, which was also Lukoil’s vice-president.
Ravil Maganov, 67, was found dead after allegedly falling from a ward on the 6th floor of a hospital, where he was being treated.
Maganov fell from the façade of the Central Clinical Hospital’s main structure, which is currently being renovated.
At this hospital, there are no surveillance cameras. Patients are not permitted to use the balconies located on this side of the hospital.
Russian media are pushing the idea that Maganov might have gone out to smoke but accidentally fell. A packet of cigarettes was found at the window of the ward.
Maganov, who had a long-standing issue with his heart, was admitted to the hospital for routine checks. He left no suicide note.
Maganov, who had been with Lukoil from 1993 to the day after its inception, was responsible for overseeing refining, production, exploration and finally becoming chairman in 2020.
His brother Nail is the head of mid-sized Russian oil producer Tatneft.
Ravil Maganov was close to Vagit Alekperov, one of Lukoil’s founders.
Alekperov was a former Soviet deputy minister of oil and resigned in April as president of Lukoil. This happened a week after Britain placed an asset freeze on Alekperov and a travel ban on him as a result of sanctions against Russia’s military actions towards Ukraine.
