Віктар Цярэшчанка зноў трапіў у шпіталь

Economist and politician Victar Tsyareshchanka is in hospital. It is connected with his poising during the presidential election campaign of 2015, Radio Liberty reports.

"The tests and procedures that I took 3 or 4 times testify that I still have blood circulation problems. The blood clots that appeared as a result of chemical poisoning at the end of August still exist. My brain is not receiving enough oxygen. There are other problems too. Doctors will study the situation,” Tsyareshchanka said.


Victar Tsyareshchanka drank a fresh carrot milkshake in a Minsk café Grunwald on August 28 and was taken to hospital after that. He was poisoned, the politician believes.

The Central Election Committee did not register Tsyareshchanka as a presidential candidate because he had not managed to collect 100 thousand signatures in his support.
