Lukoil Chairman Ravil Maganov has died, according to multiple reports. He was 67.

Russian state-owned news agency TASS reported that Maganov died following a "fall from a hospital window", which Russian law enforcement has logged as a suicide. Per reports, Maganov was at the hospital for treatment following a heart attack.

According to a report by Reuters, two unnamed individuals who were close to Maganov stated that it is highly unlikely that he committed suicide.

Following Russia's invasion of Ukraine, Lukoil was the sole Russian oil company to issue a statement calling for a ceasefire and a peaceful, diplomatic resolution to the conflict.

This is the second death of a Lukoil executive in recent months. In May 2022, it was reported that a former manager of Lukoil, Aleksandr Subbotin, was found dead under mysterious circumstances in the town of Mytishchi near Moscow.

Per the Washington Post, Subbotin's cause of death was listed as "heart failure" by Russian investigators.

Lukoil issued a statement following Maganov's death:

"We deeply regret to announce that Ravil Maganov, Chairman of PJSC LUKOIL Board of Directors, passed away following a severe illness.
