(QHA) -

The younger son of Ukraine's former President Viktor Yanukovych has drowned in Lake Baikal in Russia, reports say.

Nestor Shufrych, a deputy in Ukraine’s parliament, said on Facebook on Sunday that Viktor Yanukovych, 33, who had the same name as his father, was driving at the time of his death. He gave no further details.

Russian authorities have not identified the driver, who died on Friday when a minibus carrying six people crashed through thin ice on the Siberian lake, or confirmed reports that it was Yanukovych’s son. The five passengers survived.

The former president has lived in Russia since being toppled from power last year. He also has an older son, 41-year-old Alexander, a wealthy businessman.
