“When Subbotin told his attending witch doctors that he was not feeling very well after their hangover cure, they decided to give him an herbal sedative and let him sleep in their basement, in a room ‘used for Jamaican voodoo rituals,'” Breitbart News reported.
“According to the preliminary report from local police, Subbotin suffered a heart attack and died during the night. He was pronounced dead at the scene after the shamans called for an ambulance,” the report added.

The concerns regarding mysterious deaths among Russian economic leaders is a growing concern as Putin strengthens his control over the nation and continues his invasion of Ukraine.
NATO powers have continued to escalate support for Ukraine, calling on Russia to end its attack. The U.S. also introduced a bill in the Senate this week to potentially label Russia as a state sponsor of terror.
