It happened a day after pro-russian ukranian politician Oleh Kalashnikov was found dead at home. As a member of the party of former Ukranian PM Yanukovich, he continues the recent series of fatalities among  that former government.

His doctors told him in 2013 that his statistical life expectancy is five years, but he will probably beat it.
