Russian Investigative Journalist Dies After Suspicious Fall From Balcony

Miksim Borodin, who published a number of stories about the deaths of dozens of alleged Russian mercenaries who attempted to storm a US facility in Syria in February, died Sunday after falling five stories from his Yekaterinburg apartment balcony April 12.

Borodin was found underneath the balconies of his building in the city of Yekaterinburg on April 12 and died three days later without having recovered consciousness.

Polina Rumyantseva, the editor in chief of Novy Den, where Borodin worked, said the same day that she did not believe Borodin committed suicide.

Russian authorities are investigating the fall that lead to the death of a 32-year-old investigative journalist as an accident or something else but not as a crime.

Borodin's apartment was found locked from the inside and there was no evidence of forced entry. There was no suicide note in his apartment, either, police said.

A friend of Borodin's, Vyacheslav Bashkov, wrote on Facebook on April 15 that Borodin contacted him at 5 a.m. on April 11 and said his building was surrounded by "security forces" wearing camouflage and face masks.

In his Facebook post, Bashkov said that he went to local police after he found out about Borodin's death, but police seemed uninterested and "did not question [him] about much".

An hour later, however, Borodin called back and said he had been mistaken and that the security officers were conducting some sort of drill.

"In March, Borodin wrote about bodies believed to be those of mercenaries being delivered to a regional village".

Reporters Without Borders tweeted on Sunday that the circumstances of Borodin's death were "suspicious", and that they want "a thorough, impartial investigation, wrote Business Insider".

Mr Prigozhin was indicted by the United States in February on charges that he funded the "troll factory" alleged to have tried to influence the 2016 presidential election.
