Putin put his head on the coffin and cried
Zinichev died Wednesday while trying to save a man’s life during an Arctic exercise. This information was provided by the Russian Ministry. During Zinichev’s last visit, Putin became emotional and was seen crying with his head on his friend’s open coffin. He even touched Zinichev’s body inside the coffin.
Comfort to a friend’s wife
He then sat next to Zinichev’s wife, Natalya, and comforted her all the time. Putin comforted Natalya by holding her hand as she cried. Zinichev became head of Russia’s Ministry of Emergency Situations in 2018. Prior to that, he had spent several years as part of Putin’s security briefings.
The ministry issued a statement on Wednesday confirming Zinichev’s death. However, he did not say where or how he died. It was reported that he was just trying to save film director Alexander Melanick.
