MOSCOW, February 13 (Itar-Tass) — An inquest was opened in the Murmansk region into a suicide incident, presumably committed by an officer on board a submarine.
Senior Lieutenant Maxim Galkin, who served in the Navy on board of the Gepard submarine, was found dead on February 11, a source from the head military department of the Russian Investigative Committee told Itar-Tass on Monday.
According to a preliminary investigation, at 2.25 am Moscow time a submarine guard on duty found the officer dead, hanging with a rope loop around his neck.
The presumed suicide victim left no farewell message. No injuries on his body have been found. The motive is not known, the source said.
A pre-trial investigation into the incident has been conducted by the Investigative Committee military investigation department for the Gadzhiyevsky military garrison.
