Who knows... It is evil IMHO

Poisoning is so... cowardly, in my opinion. Killing without even having to face your victim, in most cases. No wonder the scum at KGB always did like it so much...
It is cowardly IMHO too. But it's also very effective and hard to trace or prove.

A lot of very successful rulers through-out history have resorted to poisoning their enemies.

I guess that's Putin nowadays, the new Borgia...

Poisoned? Maybe, could just be he got some bad drugs or has a genetic medical condition too.
I don't think so...

The Pussy Riot people have never had a history or reputation for drug use.

‘First it was his vision, then his speech, and then his legs’: Pussy Riot member Pyotr Verzilov is hospitalized in critical condition and friends fear he was poisoned

FYI, Verzilov had lived here, in Canada, as a boy, having emigrated with parents, before he returned to Russia and got involved in activism and the protest art scene back there; he is a Canadian, as well as Russian citizen: Pyotr Verzilov - Wikipedia

So, if, God forbid, this should go bad for him; then they will have murdered a Western subject, btw...

Lol, yeh right! Is there enough to go round for the whole money grabbing NWO?Soros 'group'?

There is little I can say about the latest apparent poisoning in Russia that I haven’t said before. And before that. And more recently. That Russian enemies of the current regime are often killed, most frequently by poisoning, is now a fact that requires no elaboration. In the past decade and a half, many people have fallen mysteriously ill or have died of multiple-organ failure as a result of poisoning with toxins known or, more often, unknown. Pyotr Verzilov, a thirty-year-old artist and activist who is currently in intensive care in Moscow, appears to be the latest victim of an attack by poison.

I met Verzilov during Russia’s winter of protests, in 2011 and 2012, and got to know him while I was reporting a book on the protest-art group Pussy Riot. Verzilov was married to Nadya Tolokonnikova, then twenty-two, who was the mastermind of the group. He had been a philosophy student; an artist with the group Voyna (the Russian word for “war”), a precursor to Pussy Riot; and an all-around support person and publicist for the all-female Pussy Riot. During the two years when Tolokonnikova and another Pussy Riot member, Maria Alekhina, were behind bars, Verzilov worked to draw the world’s attention to the case, to keep appeals and complaints against their imprisonment coming, and to insure that the two young women, who were serving their sentences in different parts of the country, were communicating. He shuttled tirelessly between Moscow, the two prison colonies, and whatever courts were reviewing complaints related to the case. He even produced Pussy Riot clips featuring other group members.

The women were released in December, 2013, and Verzilov helped them raise money for a prisoner-rights organization and a related news site. At some point, Verzilov and Tolokonnikova separated, and she began referring to him as her brother rather than as her husband. They continued to work together.

On July 15th of this year, during the last game of the World Cup, in Moscow, four people dressed in police uniforms ran onto the field, disrupting the match. Almost immediately, the Pussy Riot Twitter account posted an explication of the action: it was meant as a reminder that, whatever progressive front Russia was putting on for the soccer championship, it was a police state. The four people on the field were three women and Verzilov, and that probably means that this was Pussy Riot’s first action that didn’t involve only women.

The four protesters were detained but received peculiarly mild sentences: fifteen days in jail and banishment from sporting events for three years. One suspects that, if the action had taken place anywhere but at an internationally broadcast sports competition, they would have been sentenced to years in prison, for protesting without a permit and for impersonating police.

Law enforcement apparently also thought that the sentences should have been longer. As soon as the four protesters were released, they were re-arrested and taken back to court, but the judge threw out the case. On Sunday, when tens of thousands of people were protesting across Russia, two of the participants in the soccer action were arrested again, ostensibly for a traffic violation. They were taken to jail and held for two days. One of the two was Veronika Nikulshina, Verzilov’s current partner. Verzilov posted on social media about the arrest in colorful detail, as he had done throughout Pussy Riot’s existence.

On Tuesday, the two women were brought to court. Verzilov attended. The judge sentenced the women to two days in jail and ordered them released for time served. When Verzilov and Nikulshina left, he complained of feeling unwell. At home, he went to sleep at around six in the evening. Two hours later, Nikulshina said, he awoke complaining that he was going blind. During the next two hours, as Nikulshina told the Russian-language publication Meduza (and as Tolokonnikova confirmed to me, in an e-mail), Verzilov lost his ability to speak and then to walk in a straight line. By the time he was in an ambulance, Verzilov was no longer fully conscious and was having seizures. Nikulshina told Meduza (and Tolokonniva confirmed) that, at around one in the morning, Verzilov was taken to the intensive-care unit of a toxicology center, an indication that the doctors at the Moscow hospital suspected that he had been poisoned.

When I corresponded with Tolokonnikova more than twenty-four hours later, there was no further information on Verzilov’s condition. No one, including his mother, had been allowed to visit him at the hospital. The following day, the doctors told the family that they suspected that Verzilov was suffering from medication poisoning; Nikulshina said that, when he was still able to speak, he had repeatedly stressed that he had not taken anything. Doctors told the family that Verzilov was recovering but not yet speaking.
