The police are investigating the circumstances of the death, but it has been initially concluded that the man shot himself. Media interest was aroused by the fact that a month ago Pczelnikov posted photos from the holidays and nothing indicated that he was going to take his life. LLC “Digital Logistics”, in which Pczelnikow was the head of PR, dealt with the digitization of the sales process of rail freight. Its majority shareholder (51%) was the Russian Railways.
