New York medical examiner won’t reveal Russian ambassador’s cause of death
US medical examiners won’t reveal the Russian ambassador’s cause of death because Churkin’s diplomatic immunity survives his death.
The New York medical examiner’s office won’t officially reveal the cause of death of Russian ambassador to UN Vitaly Churkin who died from a heart attack on February 20, according to media outlets. That is what the medical examiner wrote in its statement, according to a tweet from ABC News’s Dan Linden.
“<…>the New York City Law Department instructed the Office of Chief Medical Examiner to not publicly disclose the cause and manner of death of Ambassador Vitaly Churkin<…>As outlined in formal requests from the United States Department of State, Ambassador Churkin’s diplomatic immunity survives his death<…>,” the tweet reads.
The New York medical examiner announced Vitaly Churkin’s death will require further study, as earlier reported by the CrimeRussia. A heart attack was cited as the probable cause of death.
Russian President Vladimir Putin awarded Vitaly Churkin the Order of Courage posthumously. “The Head of State highly valued Churkin's professionalism and diplomatic talent”, according to the Press Secretary for the President.
“Ambassador Churkin played a crucial role in working with the United States on a number of key issues to advance global security,” US President Donald Trump stated.
