Village head famous for Instagram pics in crude oil-filled bath commits suicide
The head of Izluchinsk was found dead.
Alexey Kudrik, the head of the urban settlement of Izluchinsk, Nizhnevartovsk region of Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District, was found dead today, May 17.
According to a source of Znak.com, a gun was found next to the body, so the key theory is that the administration head committed suicide.
The Yugra Investigative Committee is now checking the evidence of the official’s death. The Interior Ministry of the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous District reported that they do not know anything about what happened.
Alexey Kudrik got into the spotlight when a number of media outlets posted an Instagram photo of him having a bath last spring. The bath was filled with viscous black liquid, which was believed to be crude oil. The official chose not to comment on the information.
Kudrik's friends say that he had some disagreements with Boris Salomatin, the head of Nizhnevartovsk district.
Clouds are gathering over the ICR general. His former subordinate Aleksey Kramarenko, arrested in late 2017 in the case of a bribe to high-ranking ICR officers from thief in law Zakhary Kalashov, has revealed the involvement of his former immediate superior in the corruption episode.
