Dmitry Svetushkin RIP
25.7.1980 – 4.9.2020
Terrible news this evening that Moldova grandmaster Dmitry Svetushkin had died earlier today. Dmitry had just turned 40 years old. ChessNews.ru reports that he died as a result of a fall from an open window.
Suicide has not been ruled out. I will write when more details of his death come it. My condolences to his family.
Readers will recall that I have published many of Dmitry’s games here on this blog. A brilliant attacking player, apparently the past year has been quite difficult for him. He lost about 100 elo points.
The latest information that was published on the site mentioned above is this:
“According to the police, Svetushkin did not leave a suicide note. He lived in an apartment with his mother. The woman said that she and her son had no conflicts. A criminal case was opened,” reports ru.publika.md.
