Ex-Russian PM possibly poisoned
Illness follows fatal poisoning of former KGB spy Litvinenko
The Associated Press
Updated: 11:35 a.m. ET Nov 30, 2006
MOSCOW - Doctors treating former Russian Prime Minister Yegor Gaidar, who is ill, believe he was poisoned, an aide said Thursday.

"Doctors don't see a natural reason for the poisoning and they have not been able to detect any natural substance known to them" in Gaidar's body, spokesman Valery Natarov said. "So obviously we're talking about poisoning (and) it was not natural poisoning."

Gaidar, 50, one of the leaders of a liberal opposition party who served briefly as prime minister in the 1990s under President Boris Yeltsin, began vomiting and fainted during a conference in Ireland on Friday, and was rushed into intensive care at a hospital.

Gaidar's illness follows the poisoning of former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko, who died in London just one day before Gaidar fell ill. Another former KGB spy who met with Litvinenko on the day he was allegedly poisoned, Andrei Lugovoy, served as Gaidar's bodyguard at one point.

Anatoly Chubais, a top Yeltsin-era government official and now head of the national electricity monopoly, said Wednesday that he suspected a link between Gaidar's illness, Litvinenko's death and last month's murder of investigative reporter Anna Politkovskaya.

Natarov said Gaidar was feeling better Thursday. "His condition is stable and improving. Doctors say there is no threat to his life at the moment."
