Russian senator found dead at age 76.

A former Russian senator has passed away at 76, it was reported Thursday.

Vladimir Bochkov was a former member of Russia’s Federation Council from 2013 to 2018, representing the Ivanovo Regional Duma.

He was a member of United Russia, a party which dominates the State Duma, or federal legislative body.

While the party is supportive of President Vladimir Putin’s policies, Putin isn’t a member.

Bochkov was a long-serving government functionary on both the regional and national level, Russia’s Ivanovo News noted.

The child of government employees, he graduated from the USSR’s Moscow Financial and Economic Institute and Gorky Higher Party School.

In 1968, he began his career working in Ivanovo’s regional financial department, moving around to various government positions even after the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

He was the deputy head of city administration under Sergei Kruglov, the first mayor of Ivanovo — a city roughly 150 miles northeast of Moscow.

He came in third place in the 2000 mayoral race and was also elected to the Ivanovo Legislative Assembly several times from 2000 on.

In 2013, he was appointed to the Federation Council, putting him in a seat of national power.

He was awarded the Order of Alexender Nevsky in 2017 “for his great contribution to the development of Russian parliamentarism and active legislative activity,” Ivanovo News reported.

No cause of death was given. As of Friday morning, there had been no statement about Bochkov’s death from Putin or the Kremlin.

His funeral will be held on Saturday at the Assumption Cathedral in Ivanovo.
