Dmitry Zelenov, a 50-year-old Russian oligarch, died in unclear circumstances on December 9 AD Antibes, France, while visiting friends in the French Riviera resort. This was confirmed by the Grassa prosecutor's office to the "Nice-Matin" newspaper, after the news had already circulated on Russian Telegram channels. The oligarch would have felt unwell after dinner, and then presumably fell down the stairs and then from a railing. Zelenov reportedly died after being taken to hospital for a head injury. The Grassa prosecutor specifies that the oligarch died on 10 December at the Pasteur hospital in Nice. According to the prosecutor, an investigation is underway, entrusted to the Antibes police headquarters, to ascertain the causes of Zelenov's death.

Zelenov had made his fortune in real estate. A graduate of Moscow State University, he was the former owner of the major developer group Don-Stroy. In Moscow, his company had erected the 254-metre-high tower of the Palace of Triumph, which was for a time the largest residential building in Europe. Don-Stroy suffered significant financial setbacks during the 2008 crisis. Before incurring colossal losses, Zelenov's fortune was estimated by Forbes at $1,4 billion. According to the Telegram channel "Baza", the oligarch was known for his ties to the Russian security services and had undergone vascular surgery shortly before his death due to heart problems. Zelenov's death adds to the long list of suspected deaths of Russian oligarchs that have occurred since the start of the war in Ukraine.
