Doctors at the private Rudolfinerhaus clinic in Vienna have confirmed that Ukrainian presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko has been poisoned by Dioxin. It is unclear from the report how he became ill with the toxin or if it was a deliberate attempt.
 


UPDATE: 12/11/04 At 0820 PST
Doctors at Viennas Rudolfinerhaus clinic indicated that the toxin may have been administered by a third party.

VIENNA (AFP) - Ukrainian opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko was the victim of dioxin poisoning and the toxin was probably administered deliberately by a "third party", his doctor in Vienna said. "There is no doubt about the fact that the disease has been caused by a case of poisoning by dioxin," said Dr Michael Zimpfer, the medical chief of Vienna's Rudolfinerhaus clinic.
"We suspect a cause triggered by a third party," he added.

VIENNA, Austria - Dioxin poisoning caused the mysterious illness of Ukrainian presidential candidate Viktor Yushchenko, doctors said Saturday

Tests run over the past 24 hours provided conclusive evidence of the poisoning, Dr. Michael Zimpfer, director of Vienna's private Rudolfinerhaus clinic said.

"There is no doubt about the fact that Mr. Yushchenko's disease has been caused by a case of poisoning by dioxin," Zimpfer said.

Yushchenko has accused Ukrainian authorities of trying to poison him in the runup to a presidential vote. Citing fraud, Ukraine's Supreme Court voided the outcome of that vote, which Yushchenko lost to Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych. A rerun of the ballot is slated for Dec. 26.

There has been much speculation as of late with a lot of fingers pointing towards Russia. Dioxin is not a rare chemical and its possible that he picked it up accidentally. Or it was used specifically because thats what they want everyone to believe. A sophisticated poison would have been very suspicious and may have pointed back to the perpetrator.

Dioxin info.

Dioxins and furans are some of the most toxic chemicals known to science. A draft report released for public comment in September 1994 by the US Environmental Protection Agency clearly describes dioxin as a serious public health threat. The public health impact of dioxin may rival the impact that DDT had on public health in the 1960's. According to the EPA report, not only does there appear to be no "safe" level of exposure to dioxin, but levels of dioxin and dioxin-like chemicals have been found in the general US population that are "at or near levels associated with adverse health effects.".

These allegations first reported on November 25th in this story,

www.abovetopsecret.com...'

Now being more or less proven should end any argument about election manipulation in the now disqualified Ukrainian election.

If Yushchenko prevails in the new election at the end of this month and sets up an investigation on this matter it will be interesting to see just how far this "rabbit hole" runs - I think it may run all the way to the Russian Kremlin.

I think it would be fairly obvious. Either he is involved in something he shouldn't be, or he is being intentially poisoned. If those he is around often are not showing symptoms, it's pretty easy to figure out what's going on...

Looks like the spotlight may shine on the Russians if any proof can be found,

ABC News



Dec. 12, 2004 A Ukrainian presidential candidate's chief of staff believes "Soviet Union sort of KGB experts" were behind the plot to poison his candidate, the aide told ABC News' "Good Morning America" today.


The plot may yet be uncovered due to the media spotlight.

Wonder what that will do to Russian / US and EU relations. If that link can be proven, the Ukraine will no dobt be in the NATO camp before long. I wonder how Putin will react? Esp. if you think that this revolutionary fevor may hit Belarus as well, which is in essence a Russian pawn anyway????

Cheating during elections?!?! No way!! Who would do a thing like that eh?

The sheer cheek of it! Tsk tsk..



It's cute how the US is pointing fingers at the Ukrainians for cheating, it takes one to know one after all.

So is this guy invinceable or maybe the antichrist? How could someone live through poisoning of this type?

It all depends on exposure and time etc. No doubt it will shave many years off of his life span. But if he was dialized in time that may have helped etc. Its very variable and if they did over a long period of time, it may have just built up. The body can adapt to a point and maybe a gradual poisoning was what occured

KIEV, Ukraine - Ukrainian lawmakers reopened their investigation Monday into Viktor Yushchenko's allegations that authorities tried to kill him, after doctors in Austria determined the presidential candidate had been poisoned by dioxin
The decision by a parliamentary commission followed a similar move by the country's prosecutor general on Sunday.
Yushchenko had asked investigators to wait until after the Dec. 26 runoff so as not to influence the outcome of the vote.
The commission will be led by Volodymyr Sivkovych, a lawmaker who has supported Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, Yushchenko's opponent in this month's election.


Yahoo

We will have to wait for the result of investigation... BTW this is very good political move from Yushchenko.

You can expect some heavy liver and kidney damage for sure.


low levels of dixoin exposure is common in a number of industrial settings. Exposure to smoke from transformer fires (depending on the PCB content) can also be pretty bad.

What gets me is that this seems pretty amaturish to me. It is as if someone heard that dioxin is toxic and used it without first determining how detectable or tracable it is, or even what the effets of it would be. Furthermore, it is a fairly rare chemical, while common as a contaminant in certain industrial processes, is not at all common in concentrated form.
