Update on journalist Vladimir Kara-Murza, Jr - "acute poisoning"

The wife of well-known Kremlin critic Vladimir Kara-Murza, Jr., who fell critically ill last week in Moscow for the second time in two years, said doctors have diagnosed him with "acute poisoning by an undetermined substance." 

Yevgeniya Kara-Murza told RFE/RL on February 6 that samples of her husband's blood, hair, and fingernails have been sent to a private laboratory in Israel in an effort to identify the toxin that triggered his sudden illness.

"We want to get some samples tested again to try to determine what this 'unidentified' substance may be," she told RFE/RL in a Facebook message.

Doctors at the Moscow hospital where Kara-Murza is being treated could not immediately be reached for comment.

He has so much courage.

7. Kitty, I missed his appearance - was it in the last couple/threeweeks? - I have

an already dimmed memory of a US reporter, either on Maddow or O'Donnell, saying something like, "I asked him to please not go, but he was adamant...safe travels, my friend!"

Well, I don't expect you to answer this!! - my bitty brain is just too overwhelmed to "keep up" anymore, s i g h -

8. she did a whole segment on him last Friday (I think). About how our State Dept

 

worked really hard to get him out of Russia and into a hospital here in the USA.

The question she asked... will Rex Tillerson bother trying to help him this time?

4. Who can say?




Maybe Vlad will give tovarich Trump a tasty beverage when he decides
he no longer needs him. And maybe Trump will actually drink it.
