Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
For years, there's been a pandemic of Russian oligarchs all over the world suddenly seized with an irresistible urge to throw themselves through higher floors open windows. A new variant in this epidemic clumsiness: falling off a boat. Start of a new trend?

Putin's Man in the Far East Dies in Bizarre Fall From Boat

A Russian executive tasked with helping to oversee development in the country's Far East died in a bizarre fall from a moving boat just days after attending an economic forum with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Ivan Pechorin's death was confirmed by the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation, where he had served as aviation director. The corporation has been tasked by the Russian government with developing resources in the Far East and Arctic. Pechorin was reportedly in charge of developing aviation accessibility in the Far East by modernizing airport infrastructure and constructing new runways, among other things.
