Anti-Kremlin Activist Apparently Poisoned in Moscow

2018-09-18 21:07
Russian anti-Kremlin activist Pyotr Verzilov was apparently poisoned on Sept. 11. The political dissident was flown to a Berlin hospital for treatment, which doctors think saved his life. The doctor in charge explained the case at a press conference at Berlin’s Charite hospital. Verzilov was poisoned with a chemical that shut down parts of his nervous system. Verzilov was part of Pussy Riot, which is strongly opposed to President Vladimir Putin. His girlfriend, a fellow activist, claimed it might have been an assassination attempt.
