A mem­ber of Rus­sia’s Pussy Riot protest group says a se­verely ill fel­low ac­tivist was be­ing taken to Ger­many for treat­ment af­ter his sus­pected poi­son­ing. Maria Alekhina said Py­otr Verzilov was be­ing flown to Berlin, but did not give de­tails. In­de­pen­dent news site Me­duza re­ported that a doc­tor from a Berlin clinic who is friends with the ill man’s fa­ther sug­gested med­i­cal care out­side Rus­sia. Alekhina said she thinks Verzilov was poi­soned for po­lit­i­cal rea­sons.
