Version: Reason for politician Kotler’s suicide might be governmental reshuffle
People close to Kotler suggested that weakening of positions of Mikhail Abyzov could influence him.
The main version of the Member of United Russia’s Supreme Council Yuri Kotler's death is suicide. A Winchester gun was found near the body; inroad traces were not found. Investigators continue to work at the scene.
