Ukraine news latest: Putin’s chilling threat to US as he warns 7,000mph doomsday missiles can crush all Russian enemies

Putin’s top official rushed to hospital in ‘suspected poisoning’

A Vladimir Putin official has been rushed to hospital in a “suspected poisoning” months after fleeing Russia in protest over the war in Ukraine.

Anatoly Chubais was put into intensive care after complaining about numbness in his arms and legs.

Specialists in hazmat suits were seen streaming into Chubais’ room after he was taken ill in an unspecified country in Europe.

The report came from journalist and former Russian presidential candidate, Ksenia Sobchak. 

The 67-year-old was initially diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome – a rare and life threatening disease that affects the nerves – but investigators are keeping an open mind following repeated cases where Putin‘s enemies were poisoned to death.

Sobchak stated: “In this case, the diagnosis may change.”

She said that “the room where Chubais was when he felt unwell was examined by specialists in chemical protection suits. 

“And police questioned all the witnesses.”

His wife Avdotya Smirnova, 56, a film director, said his condition was “unstable”, said Sobchak. 

“It became bad, suddenly the arms and legs became numb.”
