— Ace Deja vu all over again?
Former Russian prime minister Yegor Gaidar was the victim of an "unnatural" poisoning, his spokesman told AFP, citing doctors.
"This was an unnatural poisoning. The doctors can't say what the substance is yet. We are expecting an official diagnosis at the beginning of next week," Valery Natarov said.
Natarov said Russian doctors had to compare their results with those of Irish doctors after Gaidar fell ill on November 24 during a trip to Ireland.
Gaidar suddenly fell unconscious and started vomiting blood after eating fruit salad and drinking a cup of tea.
Natarov and Gaidar's daughter, Maria, said earlier Thursday that Gaidar, who is recovering in a hospital in Moscow, is feeling better.
Maria Gaidar told the Kommersant daily that, based on her conversations with doctors, she expected the diagnosis to point to "a poison unknown to civilian medicine."
Gaidar suddenly fell unconscious and started vomiting blood...
As a 'true believer' in the AOS lifestyle, I know this just the typical bodily response when one consumes too much cheap vodka.

This is what they did in the old days. Whoever did this sure wanted him to suffer - and to send an awful message. Lord!
Catching him and taking him to trial and hanging or shooting him was just too much trouble, it seems.
The case is certainly bizarre.

That's why Putin had to kill him.

I don't know much about this guy Gaidar, but if he's a pro-Putin, or at least not anti-Putin character, then he's probably been poisioned by the Brits who are withholding the antidote(sp?) until such time that the heads roll on the Russian agents who performed such a sloppy job with Litvinenko as a bit of payback/check on the Russians.
Take that Tom Clancy!
