Mysterious Circumstances: Ivan Pechorin Dead – Unraveling the Enigma
On 10 September 2022, Emergency Situations Ministry was alerted that a person fell overboard of a boat in the waters of Russky Island near Cape Ignatiev. Locals also joined the Emergency Team in the search for almost two days.

None suspected that such an important person would go missing in this region on a sunny day.
The next day, body of Ivan Pechorin was found by rescue workers. He had probably died almost immediately after falling overboard. Ivan Pechorin’s body was found washed up around 100 miles from Vladivostok. Ivan’s body was found near the village of Beregovoe.
Ivan Pechorin, the managing director of the Corporation for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic, is among six deaths in mysterious circumstances since January 2022 affiliated with the country’s energy sector.
The Curious Case of Ivan Pechorin’s Demise
Born in 1983, Ivan Pechorin is the second KRDV executive to die unexpectedly in the year (2022). The death of Pechorin, 39, comes after his former boss, Igor Nosov, died from a sudden stroke at the age of 43 in February 2022.
Pechorin attended the Eastern Economic Forum headlined by Russian President Vladimir Putin last week, where he was listed as a panelist and moderator for two discussions around strengthening aviation accessibility and airport infrastructure in the Far East and Arctic. Pechorin’s company was tasked with developing the Arctic, a vast source of gas and oil for Russia.
Pechorin’s boss, CEO Igor Nosov, 43, died suddenly in February after a stroke.

Conspiracy Theories: Did Ivan Pechorin Really Die as Reported?
There are widespread theories that many Russian oligarchs were bumped off since Ukraine invasion began by the Kremlin due to holding secret information on Putin or resisting his moves in the energy field.
Many Russian Oligarchs have died in different strange ways, like being shot, hanged, stabbed, poisoned, falling, and drowned. Given the circumstances and the dissent that has surrounded Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine, many people do not believe that these deaths are just a coincidence.
Only days earlier, Pechorin had attended the Eastern Economic Forum, which was hosted by President Vladimir Putin in Valdivostok.
Pechorin spoke in a session at Eastern Economic Forum aimed at beating sanctions, called ‘Everyone has their Own Route: The Logistics of a Changed World’.
The KRDV is President Vladimir Putin’s project for developing the rich energy and mining resources of Russia’s farthest eastern region, which has become a crucial objective under the weight of international sanctions.
Russia’s Far East and Arctic Development Corporation (KRDV), described his death as an “irreparable loss.”
On September 12, 2022, it became known about the tragic death of our colleague, Managing Director for the Aviation Industry of the Far East and Arctic Development Corporation Ivan Pechorin. Ivan’s death is an irreparable loss for friends and colleagues, and a great loss for the corporation. We offer our sincere condolences to family and friends.
Development of the Arctic, a hugely lucrative and rich source of oil and gas for Russia, is seen as vital for the country amid global sanctions putting Russia’s economy under strain over Putin’s bombardment of Ukraine.
Pechorin was also responsible for the development of the air industry across the vast east of Russia – a sector also under pressure due to Western economic curbs.
