It's happening a lot lately. Yet another prominent Russian figure dies suddenly.

Via BBC:

The former chief of the Russian army has died after apparently being snubbed by Vladimir Putin – at a time when more focus than ever has been placed on sudden deaths of prominent Russians.

General Alexei Maslov, who was in charge of the Russian ground forces between 2004 and 2008, passed away “suddenly”, the Uralvagonzavod machine building company said.

The tank manufacturer did not elaborate further.

He died on Christmas Day, one day after Putin was reportedly due to visit the tank factory in Nizhny Tagil but cancelled at the last minute.
