Putin’s personal guard commits suicide in Kremlin’s compound

One of the employees of the Federal Security Service committed suicide at the Kremlin’s compound in Moscow, reported the Telegram Channel Baza, citing sources. The information was later confirmed by TASS news agency.

Mikhail Zakharov, who worked at the 5th division of the Federal Guard Service – a unit responsible for the personal protection of President Vladimir Putin – committed suicide during his shift, Baza sources say.

According to the colleagues of the deceased, the cause of his death could have been indifferent attitude of the Federal Guard Service leadership to the conditions of his work, as well as numerous extended work hours. During one of the last shifts he was forced to stay at work for more than 15 hours.

The wife of the deceased was not informed about the causes of his death. The woman was contacted by Mikhail’s superiors who only told her that he died, without going into details.

As noted by his colleagues, the Federal Guard Service has been experiencing increased workload due to acute shortage of staff. The employees have to work not only their shifts, but also take shifts of their colleagues who have left. The employees are not paid for additional work hours, officials said on condition of anonymity.

    I’ll bet there was a balcony involved.

    I always thought being a commercial fisherman was the most dangerous job in the World. Wrong again!

    Being Russian and having the ability to think is.

    If working 15 hours a day was a cause of suicide most of us in the UK would be fucked.

  • “According to the colleagues of the deceased, the cause of his death could have been indifferent attitude of the Federal Guard Service leadership to the conditions of his work…”
    Isn’t it a well-known fact that Ruskies are notorious abusers? How many Russian soldiers were forced to attack German positions – even at gunpoint – despite the glaring possibility for most of them to be mowed down? Indifference to subordinates has a long tradition.
    Or, maybe the guy knows that Pew-tin’s time is coming to an end and he knows what is awaiting him after his master is gone?

    • There is a well-known saying in the Russian military that it is very hard to advance but it’s even harder to retreat. That’s easy to understand when you realize that they always have a line of GRU waiting in the back for anyone trying to run away from being cannon fodder.
