Held important posts since 2018
Yevgini Jinichev has been heading the Ministry of Emergency Affairs since 2018. He started his career as a KGB officer in the late 1980s. He served in the Federal Security Agency (FSB) before the dissolution of the Soviet Union. At the same time, Norilsk, where this accident happened, is about 2,900 km (1,800 mi) northeast of Moscow.

Be part of President Putin’s security.
Jinichev is believed to have been part of the team protecting President Vladimir Putin. Quoting unnamed sources, the RBC news website said that Jinichev died while the emergency ministry’s training exercise video was being made. During this, a crew member has also died. The Kremlin said Putin expressed “deep condolences” over the minister’s death. After Jinichev’s death, his deputy Alexander Kuprian is likely to become an acting minister.
