Pussy Riot member Pyotr Verzilov was reportedly hospitalized and placed in intensive care on Wednesday, according to Russian outlet Meduza.
Verzilov’s family suspects he was poisoned, according to Meduza. He was taken to a hospital after he started losing his sight, speech and ability to move around.
During the 2018 FIFA World Cup final in Russia between France and Croatia, Verzilov was one of four members of the famous punk rock group who rushed the field dressed as police officers. The demonstration served as a call to release political prisoners, end illegal detentions at political rallies, stop the policing of people’s political views on social media and push for more open political competition, according to The Guardian.
Members of Pussy Riot have been major critics of Vladimir Putin and Russia’s government.
