Prominent political analyst and journalist Vladimir Pribylovsky has been found dead in his apartment in Moscow at the age of 59, his colleague, historian Yury Felshtinsky, wrote on his LiveJournal social network page on Wednesday.  

Pribylovsky's body was found on the kitchen floor of his apartment by his relatives, after he hadn't answered the phone for three days, the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper reported.

The journalist was seriously ill with diabetes, according to his ex-wife Milana Bogdanova. The exact cause of death will be determined by an autopsy.

Pribylovsky was the president of Moscow's Panorama Information and Research Center think tank and founder of the online Anticompromat portal. He is also known as the co-author of the book “The Corporation: Russia and KGB in the Age of President Putin.”
