    The Russian Embassy in Iraq confirmed on Tuesday the death of a Russian engineer at the Kut Al Hayy Air Base in the province of Wasit.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – German media cited Iraqi sources saying that the Russian national who serviced warplanes at the airbase 100 miles southeast of Baghdad was found dead in his room on Monday.

    "Yes, we can confirm this information," First Secretary of the Embassy in Baghdad Aleksander Kozin told RIA Novosti, ruling out a violent cause of death.

    The diplomat added that the embassy was in "close coordination" with local authorities investigating the causes of the unnamed engineer’s death.
