Russian Ambassador to Sudan Migayas Shirinskiy died Wednesday at his residence in Khartoum, the fourth Russian diplomat to die since January, CNN reports

State news broadcaster Russia 24 reports that Skirinskiy, born in 1954 and appointed to his position in 2013, died while swimming in his pool.

Embassy staff said he showed signs of a heart attack, and that they called an ambulance, but doctors were unable to save him. Sudanese police have reportedly ruled that his death was not the result of an assassination attempt.

Shirinskiy is the fourth Russian diplomat to die this year, after Russia’s Ambassador to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin died of a suspected heart attack, age 64.

"As outlined in formal requests from the United States Department of State, Ambassador Churkin's diplomatic immunity survives his death. Further questions concerning this matter should be directed to the United States Department of State," Julie Bolcer, a spokeswoman for New York City’s Chief Medical Examiner, told CNN

Not even a month earlier Russian Ambassador to India Alexander Kadakin, 67, died after falling ill. Two weeks prior to that, a senior diplomat, Andrey Malanin, in Russia’s Greek embassy died of natural causes, according to Greek police, in his apartment in Athens.
