A Ukrainian negotiator and billionaire Roman Abramovich are suffering from “symptoms of suspected poisoning,” according to reports

According to sources quoted by media such as ‘The Guardian’ and ‘The Wall Street Journal,’ Rustem Umerov, a member of the Ukrainian negotiating team, and Roman Abramovich, a Russian millionaire also involved in the discussions, have exhibited “symptoms of probable poisoning” in recent weeks.

According to the BBC, sources close to Abramovich have confirmed this knowledge, albeit they have not provided details on Umerov’s alleged poisoning.

In early March, Abramovich took part in informal peace talks in Kiev on his own behalf. He became ill during his stay in Ukraine’s capital and “lost his vision for many hours.”

Umerov was also present during the talks. Both then flew to Poland and then to Istanbul, where they were treated for their injuries.

“It happened on his first visit to Kyiv. For several hours, Roman was blind. They treated him and Rustem at a clinic in Turkey “According to a source mentioned by ‘The Guardian,’

‘The Wall Street Journal’ and the investigative journalism web Bellingcat were the first to publish the material. “Bellingcat can certify that three members of the delegation who attended the Ukraine-Russia peace negotiations on March 3-4, 2022, experienced symptoms that could have been caused by chemical weapons poisoning. Roman Abramovich, a Russian businessman, is one of the victims “Bellingcat sent a tweet about it.

Inflammation of the eyes and skin, as well as searing pain in the eyes, are common symptoms. “In the hours leading up to the onset of symptoms, the three males only drank chocolate and water. A fourth team member likewise utilized these medications but has not noticed any side effects “Bellingcat claims to be correct.

After conferring with specialists, the portal claims that these symptoms are most likely the consequence of “poisoning with an unidentified chemical weapon.”

According to the source, Abramovich’s health has finally recovered, and he has returned to Kyiv to participate in the next round of negotiations. On Tuesday, the Russian and Ukrainian delegations will hold their fourth round of informal talks in Istanbul.
