Pussy Riot’s Peter Verzilov hospitalized reportedly due to ‘poisoning’

News

Pussy Riot’s Peter Verzilov is in critical condition, due to which he was hospitalized on the 11th of September. In a shocking announcement made by his partner Veronika Nikulshina, it is revealed that Peter has started losing his sight, speech, and mobility. His friends believe that the sudden illness was due to poisoning although the hospital staff refused to reveal any information regarding the same.

One of the publishers of the news website Mediazona reported that Peter was rushed to the toxicology wing of Moscow’s Bakhrushin City Clinical Hospital. His friends stated that his mother came to the hospital and was refused the permission to see her son, and no one even explained to her about his preliminary diagnosis.


“[At the hospital] they said they don’t have the right to disclose any information… They sent her away and were rude. They said they can’t admit her. They kept pointing at this sheet of paper, saying that they can’t disclose [any information] until the patient signs a release himself, but he’s unconscious,” Verzilov’s friend told Meduza.

Verzilov apparently started feeling unwell after a court hearing on Tuesday and later that evening he told Nikulshina that he was starting to lose his sight.

“Between eight and ten, his condition got exponentially worse. First, it was his vision, then his ability to speak, and then his ability to walk,” she told Meduza.

“When the paramedics arrived, he answered all their questions, saying, ‘No, I didn’t eat anything. No, I didn’t take anything.’ He was getting worse even faster, and then he started convulsing. On the way [to the hospital], in the ambulance, he was already babbling. […] He fell into such a half-asleep, half-unconscious state that he stopped responding to me and didn’t even recognize me anymore,” Veronika Nikulshina told Meduza.

The staff refused to tell his partner if he had been diagnosed for ‘poisoning’ but only said that his condition was serious and that he was improving – responding to his own name.

Verzilov, who was a member of the ‘Voina’ artist-activist group, rose to public fame during his demonstrations with his then-wife, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova. In 2012, Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich became international celebrities when they were tried and convicted of “premeditated hooliganism performed by an organized group of people motivated by religious hatred or hostility.
