Writing on Mozhem Obyasnit – which means We Can Explain – Gennady Gudkov claimed there were similarities in the passing of top managers and their families from senior gas companies.
He claimed: "Don’t let the ‘rats’ escape, they might talk.
“If we already understand that the regime is engaged in the elimination of its opponents and enemies, then why will they not deal with those who are considered traitors who have fled the system.
"Many cases of [suspicious deaths] are like settling scores.”
