The death of Russians in Albania: the main version of the police

Albanian police are trying to determine the cause of death of Russian tourists in Albania as soon as possible. After the investigation, the version of chlorine poisoning came to the fore.

An unnamed law enforcement source told the Albanian Daily News that the victims could have been poisoned while swimming in the pool, due to the excessive saturation of the water with chlorine. He quoted the testimony of one of the hotel employees:

“Russian tourists asked to swim in the hotel pool, which was closed. <...> On Friday, I cleaned it with chlorine so that vacationers could use it.”

Perhaps, the interlocutor notes, the employee “overdid it”, using too much substance to clean the pool and disinfect the water. Today this is the most likely version of the cause of death of tourists, although it is also considered murder version

Earlier, the Russian embassy in Albania confirmed the deaths of four Russians. The consular department is in close cooperation with law enforcement agencies investigating the circumstances of the tragedy. The relatives of the victims were informed about the incident. The embassy in Tirana asked not to disseminate offensive, unsubstantiated, fabrications about alcohol or drug intoxication of the victims.

As the journalist of ABC News Albania Leonid Musai managed to find out, the Russians arrived on Sunday. On October 15, they ordered a sauna after returning from a walk. They didn’t have dinner at the hotel. At about 10 pm they were found dead, in the position described by a hotel employee. “The main mystery is what they ate or drank during the day,” the journalist writes, not excluding version of poisoning

According to media reports, the dead are citizens of Russia, all relatives: 58-year-old Natalya Burenkova, 60-year-old Sergei Burenkov, 37-year-old Nikita Belousov and Ekaterina Burenkova, who is 31 years old.
