A senior Russian diplomat has been found dead in his Athens apartment. 

Andrey Malanin, who was head of the consular section, was found on the floor of his bedroom by a member of the embassy’s staff on Monday, after he failed to report for work.  

A Greek police official confirmed the death of the 54-year-old and said homicide officers had now been drafted in to help with the investigation due to Mr Malanin’s diplomatic status.

Police said a coroner will examine the body, while homicide officers will also investigate the death. 

This comes after Russia’s ambassador to Turkey, Andrey Karlov, was assassinated by a rogue police officer while speaking at a photo exhibition in Ankara last month.

Malanin is understood to have lived alone in a Russian embassy-owned building on a heavily-guarded street where the official residence of the Greek prime minister and president also reside.
