Two members of the Russian State Duma, both from the ruling United Russia party, have died on the same day, Russian state-owned news agency TASS reported on April 23.
Dzhasharbek Uzdenov, 56, from Karachay-Cherkessia and Nikolay Bortsov, 77, from Lipetsk Oblast have the same date of death.
Bortsov voted to recognize the puppet authorities in Russian-occupied Donbas and was sentenced in absentia in Ukraine to 15 years in prison.
Uzdenov was ill and missed the vote to recognize the terrorists.
On March 21, Ukraine’s court sentenced 20 members of the Russian State Duma to 15 years in prison for voting to recognize the puppet authorities in Donbas.
