The Russian Foreign Ministry on Wednesday confirmed reports about the death of Russia's Ambassador to Sudan Mirgayas Shirinsky.

Less than a month earlier, the Russian ambassador to India, 67-year-old Alexander Kadakin, died after a short illness. The Russian Foreign Ministry has verified the news.

Russia's ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was assassinated while speaking at an art gallery in Ankara in an act famously captured on video December 19. Sudanese police have reportedly ruled that his death was not the result of an assassination attempt.

The diplomat died while swimming in the pool of his residence, according to state broadcaster Russian Federation 24.

The ambassador showed symptoms of an acute heart attack, embassy staff told the state broadcaster.

"Doctors were summoned but were unable to save him", Konyashin said on state-run Rossia-24 television.

"As soon as we receive detailed information from the Russian embassy staff in Khartoum, we will give information on the circumstances of the death of our colleague", it added.

Sudan's foreign ministry expressed its condolences to Russian Federation in a statement, hailing Shirinskiy's diplomatic efforts.

"We grieve to announce that on August 23 in Khartoum the Russian ambassador to Sudan, M. Shirinsky, died", Russia's state news agency RIA Novosti reported, citing the foreign ministry in Moscow.

Mr Shirinsky served in the Russian diplomatic corps for 40 years.
