Russian Investigative Journalist Dies After Fall From Balcony

Russia's U.S. ambassador warns of consequences for Syria strikes

In recent weeks, he wrote extensively about the deaths in February of Russian mercenaries fighting in Syria, identifying several fighters from the Urals city of Asbest who had been killed.

The door to the apartment was found locked from the inside after Borodin's fall.

Last year, he gave an interview to a Russian independent channel TV Rain and talked about the controversial film Matilda, then was subsequently hit on the head by an unknown assailant with a metal pipe.

Polina Rumyantseva, the editor in chief of Novy Den, where Borodin worked, said the same day that she did not believe Borodin committed suicide. Bashkov said the reporter asked to find him a lawyer, but an hour later Borodin called back and said it was a false alarm.

Russian investigative journalist Maksim Borodin of Yekaterinburg has died of injuries sustained on April 12 when he fell from the window of his fifth-floor apartment.

On February 7, the group made headlines when hundreds were killed in Syria in the first open confrontation with USA forces in more than 50 years after a manoeuvre took them across the dividing line between US-led and Russian-backed groups.

Russian oligarch Yevgeny Prigozhin is suspected of bankrolling the Wagner Group. He was one of 13 Russians indicted in February as a result of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation on charges he funded the "troll factory" in St Petersburg that allegedly tried to sway the United States presidential election in 2016.

Thousands of Wagner mercenaries are allegedly involved in military operations in Syria.

It's believed up to 2500 Russian mercenaries work in Syria earning around 300,000 roubles per month as part of the paramilitary force which is reportedly under the control of the GRU, or Russian military intelligence. As the New Yorker noted, it was the first time in half a century that Russian and US military forces had engaged in direct combat.

On Monday, Harlem Désir, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe's representative on freedom of the media, expressed shock and "serious concern" over what had happened.

"I call on the authorities for a swift and thorough investigation", he tweeted.

Russia ranks first in the European Federation of Journalists list of countries with the highest number of journalists murdered in Europe.

"This story is not about how the regime kills one journalist who writes on inconvenient topics", Volkov wrote on Facebook.
