“No, I don’t know, maybe it happened, something happened while we are having a conference -call, but I don’t have such information,” Peskov told reporters, answering a question about the politician’s death.
Today, State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin announced the death of Zhirinovsky. The lower house of parliament honored the memory of the Duma old-timer with a minute of silence.
At the end of March, there were already reports of the politician's death, but these data were not confirmed. Zhirinovsky was hospitalized in early February and was under the supervision of doctors all this time.
