What happened to Vadim Zimin? This 53-year-old man, a former close collaborator of Valdimir Putin, was found shot and wounded in his apartment. The 50-year-old was in a pool of blood when his brother discovered him on Wednesday evening in the kitchen of his home.

Vadim Zimin was a former colonel in the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation. He had also been responsible for the Russian President’s secret “nuclear briefcase”, first for Boris Yeltsin and then Vladimir Putin. This briefcase contains all the nuclear information for the president, such as launch plans.

According to the first information, the former colonel would have tried to commit suicide since a rifle was next to him and that he is currently the subject of a criminal investigation for allegations of corruption. Vadim Zimin was also placed under house arrest for this reason. Still, the incident raises questions since it is a new high-ranking Russian officer linked to Vladimir Putin who disappears or is mysteriously killed.

The Kremlin has not commented on the incident at this time.
