Vladimir Putin’s alleged election rigger for nearly a decade has died from a sudden heart attack, despite appearing fine days earlier. 70-year-old Vladimir Churov died on Wednesday, after attending hospital following a “massive stroke” last week.

Mr Churov, who was the former Chairman of the Russian Central Election Commission, coined the phrase “Putin is always right”.

Russian state-owned news agency TASS claimed Mr Churov died this morning after surgery.

The Sun reported that politician Leonid Ivlev said: “It is sad news indeed. [He died] after surgery in a hospital at 8am today.

“[He] passed away after suffering a serious heart attack.”

However, a surprised Mr Ivlev said the late Mr Chruov appeared physically fit when he saw him at the start of the week.

He said: “He had a heart operation, then came to his senses, began to get up, walk around the ward, talked about his plans, was going to write a book, but that’s how it all happened.”

Mr Churov earned the nickname “the magician, due to his infamy at allegedly fixing elections to ensure Putin won between 2007 and 2016.

A former western diplomat in the Russian capital said: “Churov knew where the bodies were buried over election falsification which gave Putin a clear run, preventing opposition parties gaining a foothold.”

His role, it was claimed, was to ensure Putin’s Kremlin was happy with the result of election, whilst simultaneously ensuring that the democratic process appeared democratic.

This comes as following accusations by the UK that the Russian president is peddling deliberate disinformation after he claimed that Britain was supplying Ukraine with “weapons with a nuclear component”.

After talks with China’s President Xi Jinping, Putin warned Russia will “respond accordingly” if Rishi Sunak sends depleted uranium tank ammunition to the government in Kyiv.

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) however batted off the warning, noting that the armour-piercing shells had been standard equipment for decades and were “nothing to do with nuclear weapons or capabilities”.

At a news conference alongside Xi, the former KGB man pointed to British plans to supply Ukrainian with depleted uranium shells along with a squadron of Challenger 2 main battle tanks.

“It looks like the West indeed intends to fight Russia until the last Ukrainian,” he said.

“If that happens, Russia will respond accordingly, given that the collective West is starting to use weapons with a nuclear component.”
