Putin Weapons Designer Dies Amid ‘Anxiety and Depression Treatment’


Putin Weapons Designer Dies Amid 'Anxiety and Depression Treatment'

One of Vladimir Putin’s top weapons designers has died in mysterious circumstances as he ‘underwent treatment to combat anxiety disorders and depression’.

Dmitry Konoplev, 46, headed the defense-related Shipunov Instrument Design Bureau, which is behind the lethal Pantsir missile system used in the war in Ukraine.

In total, the organization is responsible for more than 150 weapons and pieces of military equipment used by the Russian Army.

Previously, Konoplev was deputy director of Russia’s Federal Agency for the Supply of Weapons, Military, Special Equipment and Materials.

He evidently died after suffering acute anxiety.

Initial reports said doctors could not establish the weapon guru’s cause of death.

But later, Izvestia reported he suffered an ‘acute heart attack’ while undergoing Xenon therapy wearing an oxygen mask at an elite Moscow clinic.

The treatment, which sees patients inhale Xenon which has been found to have properties similar to that of antidepressants, is used to counter anxiety, depression, neurological diseases and sleep problems.

With war unleashed by Putin raging in Ukraine, Konoplev was reported to have been suffering anxiety and headaches.
