Another of Vladimir Putin’s senior cronies is dead after mysteriously “falling overboard” a boat.

39-year-old Ivan Pechorin, who is Putin’s “point man” for developing Russia’s vast Arctic resources, is the ninth suspicious death from within the Kremlin’s inner circle of powerbrokers in the past several months.

Many of the Russian oligarchs who died mysteriously are linked to the country’s energy sector as it comes under scrutiny over its supplies to Europe.

Pechorin, managing director of Putin’s Far East and Arctic Development Corporation, had recently attended a major conference hosted by Putin in Vladivostok and apparently drowned while sailing his private yacht off the country’s Pacific coast.

Daily Russian tabloid, Komsomolskaya Pravda said he plunged overboard in waters close to Russky Island near Cape Ignatiev.

Pechorin was also responsible for the development of the air industry across the vast east of Russia – a sector also under pressure due to Western economic curbs.
