The Russian ambassador to Sudan was found dead in a swimming pool at his home, becoming the fourth diplomat from his country to die in eight months.

Mirgayas Shirinskiy, 62, who appointed to the role in 2013 suffered from high pressure and died of natural causes, according to police.

Sudan’s foreign ministry expressed its condolences to Russia in a statement, hailing Shirinskiy’s diplomatic efforts.

The Russian foreign ministry described Shirinskiy as being “devoted his life to the service of the homeland.”

Shirinskiy had been a diplomat since 1977 and had worked in Rwanda, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.

The long-serving ambassador – whose body was found at his home in Khartoum – is the latest in a string of deaths among Russia’s senior diplomatic circle.
