Kremlin Critic Pribylovsky Found Dead in Moscow Apartment

Vladimir Pribylovsky

Prominent political analyst and journalist Vladimir Pribylovsky has been found dead in his apartment in Moscow at the age of 59, his colleague, historian Yury Felshtinsky, wrote on his LiveJournal social network page on Wednesday.  

Pribylovsky's body was found on the kitchen floor of his apartment by his relatives, after he hadn't answered the phone for three days, the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper reported.

The journalist was seriously ill with diabetes, according to his ex-wife Milana Bogdanova. The exact cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.

Pribylovsky was the president of Moscow's Panorama Information and Research Center think tank and founder of the online Anticompromat portal. He is also known as the co-author of the book “The Corporation: Russia and KGB in the Age of President Putin.”

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
