  • Pyotr Verzilov, the Pussy Riot activist who invaded the World Cup pitch in July and is believed to be poisoned, landed in Berlin, Germany, for medical treatment.
  • Speculation has abounded that Verzilov is the next victim of poisoning, following the attack on Sergei Skripal in the United Kingdom.
  • Verzilov’s wife, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, told BILD she believes Verzilov was “deliberately poisoned” out of “intimidation or even attempted murder.”

He became world famous for invading the pitch during the World Cup final in Moscow. A few days ago, he was hospitalized in Moscow with “signs of poisoning.” Now Pyotr Verzilov, 30, husband of “Pussy Riot” lead singer Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 28, has arrived in Berlin via air ambulance. He will be treated by specialists in Berlin.

The plane from Moscow landed at 10:45 p.m. at Schönefeld Airport. Pyotr Verzilov’s mother, Jelena, was also on board.
