A Russian investigative journalist, who drew national fame for his stories on Russian mercenaries being killed in Syria, mysteriously fell from his balcony and died a day after camouflaged “security forces” reportedly surrounded his building.

Maxim Borodin, a 32-year-old reporter for Novy Den, was pronounced dead Thursday after plunging from the building in Yekaterinburg, nearly 900 miles east of Moscow. Police are not looking into the death and are ruling it a suicide or accident. But in a country where vicious attacks against prominent journalists frequently go unsolved, some critics are calling for a full investigation.

The journalist had claimed he thought his apartment was about to be raided and asked Bashkov for help in finding a lawyer, according to Radio Free Europe.

But around an hour later, Borodin called Bashkov back and said he was wrong and that the mystery men were taking part in some kind of drill.

Borodin was never heard from again and found badly injured outside the apartment the next morning.

Sounds a lot like the case of the former Secretary of Defense James Forrestal....doesn't it?

Not too fishy. Now we will see if a REAL investigation is done or just lip service in the case of James Forrestal.

Sounds suspicious. I guess the media agencies are going to push a narrative with this one. Both East and West.

He had the goods on CNN.

So, who was he reporting against? That is where we look for details.

Sounds suspiciously similar to deaths related to the Clintons, doesn't it?

Crude. But effective. It's been used more than once.

Then, after Mr. Magnitsky’s death in prison, a fourth insider met an untimely end in a plunge from a balcony.

A lawyer connected to murdered Putin foe Sergei Magnitsky has been thrown from a window in Moscow.

When in Moscow. Stay on the ground floor.
