Russian dissident falls gravely ill with ‘symptoms of poisoning’

WASHINGTON — The wife of a prominent Russian opposition activist who mysteriously fell ill in Moscow this week is seeking his evacuation to Europe or Israel for toxicology tests, saying his condition has not improved.

Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr., a former political ally of slain Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov, lost consciousness in Moscow on May 26 and was hospitalized with what his wife calls “symptoms of poisoning.”

“His condition has not improved since; he has not regained consciousness,” his wife, Yevgenia, said in an e-mail to RFE/RL and other media outlets.
