A Russian reporter known for his investigations into Russian mercenaries in Syria died after a fall from his apartment in the city of Yekaterinburg, raising fresh concern about threats to independent journalists.

Local investigators said they were considering several possible causes of death but that no crime was suspected at this time, the BBC reported.

Friend Vyacheslav Bashkov, described Mr Borodin as a "principled, honest journalist" and said he had called him at five in the morning last week to claim there was "someone with a weapon on his balcony and people in camouflage and masks on the staircase landing".

Russian media reports claimed police said the apartment was locked from the inside, indicating no one else had entered or left the property. One friend, Paulina Andreevna, said in a Facebook post that Borodin had been hospitalized earlier this month after a stranger attacked him outside his home.

Paulina Rumyantseva, editor-in-chief of Ria Novy Den, said Borodin's fall could have been the result of foul play or an accident.

Mr Borodin, who had been looking to hire a lawyer, later called him back to say he was wrong and that the security were a part of an exercise.

"As Maxim had big plans for his personal life and career, there is nothing to support a verdict of suicide", she told CNN.

United States suggests Russia, Syria may tamper with Douma evidence, Moscow denies

Further intelligence about the attacks had been added by "multiple" cyber-security organisations and companies, he added. The FBI also pledged to do whatever it takes to combat Russian cyberattacks.

The Wagner Group is believed to be bankrolled by Yevgeny Prigozhin, who was indicted in the United States in February on charges of funding a "troll factory" that tried to influence the 2016 presidential election.

Meanwhile in February, Mr Borodin reported as many as 200 Wagner fighters killed in battle with U.S. soldiers in Syria.

Russian investigative journalist Maksim Borodin of Yekaterinburg has died of injuries sustained on April 12 when he fell from the window of his fifth-floor apartment.

Thousands of Wagner mercenaries are allegedly involved in military operations in Syria.

But Harlem Desir, who talks about media freedom for the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, said Borodin's death was "of serious concern".

Only a dozen deaths were confirmed by Russian authorities, however Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo said that "a few hundred" Russians were killed. In February, he broke a story about Russian mercenaries who died in an armed confrontation with USA forces near Deir-Ezzor, Syria.

Russia ranks first in the European Federation of Journalists list of countries with the highest number of journalists murdered in Europe.
