The two latest victims: 68-year-old Lieutenant General Vladimir Sviridov and his wife, 72-year-old Tatjana, were found dead in their bedroom, Index wrote.
Given their age, the death is not surprising, but the fact that they died simultaneously, according to the first investigation, roughly a week before the bodies were discovered, is.
From 2005 to 2009, the general was the commander of the Russian Air Force’s 6th Army and Air Defense.
So far, it has not been revealed what caused the death of Vladimir and Tatjana Sviridov, but the general previously criticized the Russian military leadership in several interviews.
