Ravil Maganov, the chairman of Russia’s second-largest oil producer Lukoil, died Thursday after falling from a hospital window in Moscow. The news agency Reuters reported the information with reference to a related source.

Some Russian media also reported the death of 67-year-old Maganov, citing unidentified sources. He was also the Vice President of Lukle.

There was no immediate comment from Lukoil on Maganov’s death.

Maganov worked at Lukoil from 1993, shortly after the company’s inception. He was responsible for overseeing the company’s refining, production and exploration. Later in 2020 he became the chairman. His brother Neil is the head of mid-sized Russian oil producer Tatneft.

Ravil Maganov was a close associate of Vagit Alekperov, one of the founders of Lukoil.

Britain imposed an asset freeze and travel ban on former Soviet deputy oil minister Alekperov as part of sanctions over Russian military action in Ukraine. A week after this, he resigned from the post of president of Lukoil last April.
