Well, isn’t this fishy?
Vitaly Churkin has served as Russia’s permanent representative to the UN since 2006.
The 64-year-old was at the Russian embassy in Manhattan when he became sick with a “cardiac condition” around 9.00am this morning.
He was unconscious and needed CPR when he was rushed to New York Presbyterian Hospital.
But the diplomat has died in hospital, the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Monday.
The ministry gave no details on the circumstances of his death but offered condolences to his relatives and said the diplomat had died one day before his 65th birthday.
The statement read: “A prominent Russian diplomat has passed away while at work. We’d like to express our sincere condolences to Vitaly Churkin’s family.”
