(INTELLIHUB) — Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych reportedly died this week.  Multiple news sources in Ukraine cited a Facebook posting made by Mikhail Lebed who broke the news.

According to him, he received the information about the death from a friend who works at a hospital in the city of Rostov, Russia.

“Yanykovych was brought there at around 11 PM on March 3 after suffering a heart attack, and an hour later he died,” Lebed said.

Yanukovych escaped from Kiev on February 21, and then was ousted from power by the Ukrainian parliament. He asked the Russian authorities to provide him security in the territory of that country.

It is important to emphasize that these reports are still unconfirmed, but more information will be posted as it becomes available.

As we reported earlier today, the Crimean parliament has voted for the region to join Russia, not Ukraine.  However, the new Ukrainian government has declared the referendum illegal and opened a criminal investigation against Crimean Prime Minister Sergei Askyonov.
