Ivan Sechin Obituary


Posted On


It has been reported that Ivan Sechin, the 35-year-old son of Russian state-owned oil firm Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin, passed away on February 5.


Working for Rosneft since March 2014, Sechin’s death remained unreported until exiled Russian businessman and ardent opponent of Russian President Vladimir Putin Leonid Nevzlin brought attention to an entry in the official registry of inheritance cases.

The person whose registration in the registry is Ivan Igorevich Sechin, a 1989 native who resided in a building that was formerly referred to as “a house for President Putin’s associates,” according to reports from independent Russian news agencies.
