A member of the Russian punk protest group Pussy Riot has been hospitalized and is said to be in a grave condition. Local media reports in Russia say the culprit could be a possible case of poisoning.

Pyotr Verzilov has been in emergency care since Tuesday. Media outlets Ekho Moskvy radio and Meduza, an online news portal, made the report. They quoted another Pussy Riot member, Veronika Nikulshina, as sharing that Verzilov suffered from the symptoms of losing his eyesight and ability to speak.

Nikulshina also confirmed that Verzilov was being treated in the toxicology unit of a Moscow hospital, under suspicions of poisoning.

The Twitter account of the group also confirmed Verzilov’s condition.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Our friend, brother, comrade Petr Verzilov is in reanimation. His life is in danger.

The two Pussy Riot members, along with two other activists, served 15-day jail sentences for causing disruption in July’s World Cup final. They were apprehended for running into the field wearing police uniforms, leading to a brief interruption to the game between France and Croatia.

The group has always said they were protesting excessive police powers in Vladimir Putin’s state.

Others have also turned to social media to report other updates and happenings related to Verzilov’s hospitalization.
