Russian Investigative Journalist Dies After Fall From Balcony

Air strikes on Syria will not change course of war UK's Johnson

Borodin, a Yekaterinburg-based investigative correspondent for the independent news website Novy Den, died yesterday after falling on April 12 from the balcony of his fifth-floor apartment, local media and his employer reported.

Borodin's friend, Vyacheslav Bashkov, wrote on Facebook that Borodin contacted him early in the morning on Wednesday, the day before the fall, and told him that there was a man with a gun on his balcony, and that several others in masks and camouflage clothing were lurking in the stairwell leading to his apartment building. He died Sunday at a hospital.

The 32-year-old scribe worked for new website Novy Den and wrote about the February 7 deaths of Russian mercenaries known as the "Wagner Group" who were killed in an attack on a US-held base in Syria. Officially, his death was being investigated as a suicide.

An unnamed spokesperson for Yekaterinburg's branch of Russia's Investigative Committee, the agency tasked with probing serious crimes, told the state news agency TASS that Borodin's apartment was locked from the inside and "there is no evidence of foul play".

Local police said they did not see any foul play, but his death prompted intense speculation among friends and colleagues. He asked Bashkov to find him a lawyer.
