  1. As of being “retired”:

    The deputy head of Russia’s military intelligence agency has died mysteriously in a swimming accident several days ago, the Russian state media reports.

    “Several days ago, General Yuri Ivanov died while swimming,” Russia’s official news agency RIA Novosti quoted a military source as saying on Saturday.

    Details regarding the death of the 52-year-old official, who was deputy head of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (GRU), have not yet been released.

    During the Soviet era, the GRU was considered a rival to the KGB, the Russian secret service.

    Gen. Yuri Ivanov, 52, deputy head of GRU, the Russian military’s overseas intelligence arm of Russian military, was found dead in mysterious circumstances described in a terse official Russian eulogy on Aug. 30 as a tragic swimming accident “several days ago.” No further details were provided such as where he died.

    • Note: GRU is the “Main Intelligence Directorate” and not the General Staff.

      It’s supposed to be actually more important than the Russian General Staff, which was once very powerful but got totally sidelined by Putin and the “former” KGB circa 2003/2004.
