Natalia Pronina was a Russian dancer and from Moscow, was gunned down at close range by a hooded and masked man as she returned to her home near to the Akademicheskaya metro station from a choreography session.
Natalia Pronina — who won international dance competitions, including in the UK — was shot twice in the chest by the masked assassin outside her apartment building near the Akademicheskaya train station, East2West News reported.
She was targeted as she returned home from a choreography session, according to the news outlet.
Ms Pronia, who won prizes at international dance festivals including in Britain, was rushed to hospital and underwent surgery but died two hours after the attack.
A former dancing colleague Anzhelika said: ‘Natalia not only danced beautifully she is a real beauty.
‘Men always clung to her and it is possible that one of the rejected fans could have killed her.’
A ‘master of sport’ in ballroom dancing, she is known to have formed her own team to perform at VIP corporate parties and elite clubs – including striptease.
Police are reportedly investigating a theory that Ms Pronina had been in a long-term but secret relationship with a wealthy man, believed to be an MP, who trained in martial arts, according to the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper.
They had been dating until this summer, when the MP’s wife learned about the affair,’ said a report.
The dancer had faced ‘threats’ from the woman, it was claimed.
It was also reported that the assassin, dressed in a hoodie and wearing a mask and glasses, had used a non-lethal self-defence gun redesigned for shooting with real bullets.
‘She did not have a serious relationship,’ said Anzhelika.
‘She was not the type who dreams of a white dress and a bunch of kids. Her work was her life.
‘She earned well, she could afford a lot. Last year, she definitely travelled four times to Milan where she also had fans.
‘But this year, due to the pandemic, she did not fly anywhere.’

Shot & Killed
A 30-year-old Russian dancer was gunned down in Moscow in what is being investigated as a “contract killing” after reportedly having an affair with a wealthy politician, according to a report.
Police sources have reportedly indicated that the footage has not yet helped track the shooter who may have been a contract killer ordered to murder her.
One theory is that the former nightclub dancer was reportedly having an affair with a ‘wealthy’ politician but that his wife had become aware of the relationship.
The chilling CCTV footage shows Ms Pronina entering her apartment before the masked assassin creeps up behind her and shoots her twice in the chest.
The attacker reportedly released a stun grenade to distract attention from the shooting before he dropped the weapon and fled, according to reports citing law enforcement.
Chilling surveillance footage captured the moment the striking brunette saw her killer approach from the shadows before he opened fire from close range.
He dropped the gun and fled, according to local reports. The video has not helped investigators track down the shooter, police sources said.
Pronina was rushed to a hospital, where she underwent surgery, but died two hours later, East2West News reported.
“She had no enemies, I can say with absolute certainty,” her friend Valeria told the tabloid daily Komsomolskaya Pravda. “Only one of her admirers could be behind this because of jealousy.”
Another is that she was killed by a local stalker whose romantic overtures she had rejected.
Harrowing CCTV caught the moment Ms Pronina saw the killer approach her from the shadows, before he shot her with a pistol from close range.
