Russian Oil Tycoon Dies in Mysterious Circumstances

Alexander Subbotin, a member of the board of Lukoil’s Trading House, was reportedly undergoing an anti-hangover treatment with the shamans, Magua and his wife. During the procedure, the shamans cut Subbotin’s skin and instilled toad venom into the wound. This is a traditional method used by some shamans to treat hangovers, but it can be dangerous.

Subbotin had known the Magua family for a long time and regularly used their services. However, the last session went wrong. Alexander had gone there in a state of severe alcoholic and drug intoxication the day before his death . While getting rid of a hangover, Subbotin felt unwell and complained of chest pain. The shamans decided not to call an ambulance, but tried to cure him with Corvalol, a sedative. After treatment, Subbotin went to sleep in the basement reportedly used for “Jamaican voodoo rituals” where he died.

The shamans told the police that they were simply friends with Subbotin. Subbotin was the brother of former Lukoil vice president Valery Subbotin. He worked in the central apparatus and was seen as a potential successor to Lukoil president Vagit Alekperov.

Did Alexander Subbotin Die from Toad Venom?

Alexander Subbotin had sought the advice of shamans to cure a hangover, says the official version. Subbotin visited the shaman, Magua Flores (real name Alexey Pindyurin) and his wife Tina Cordoba (Kristina Teikhrib) at their home to treat a hangover using toad venom.


The shamans reportedly use unconventional methods to treat their clients, such as summoning spirits, sacrificing animals, and bathing them in rooster blood.

The two controversial shamans, who are traditional healers and diviners of spirits, are also accused of abusing a makeup artist and blogger during a trip to Mexico in 2021.

Was Alexander Subbotin’s Death an Accident or Murder?

The preliminary cause of death is cardiac arrest.

Subbotin was a board member of Lukoil Trading House LLC, then became the owner of the New Transport Company (NTK) on the shores of the Gulf of Finland.

In 2020, NTK was headed by his older brother Valery, who also holds a leading position at Lukoil.
