Gazprom Executive Dies

A deputy head of Gazprom’s finance department, Sergei Klyuka, was found dead in his car in Moscow late Saturday, RIA-Novosti reported, citing an unidentified law enforcement official.

Klyuka died from a single gunshot wound to the head, which may have been suicide, the official said.

A Gazprom spokesman would not immediately comment on the report, but the company later denied that Klyuka was a senior company official.
