Russian doctors have failed to identify the exact cause of a sudden illness that struck a former acting premier late last month
Russian doctors have failed to identify the exact cause of a sudden illness that struck a former acting premier late last month, a spokesman said Tuesday. Yegor Gaidar, 50, architect of economic reforms in post-Soviet Russia, began vomiting and bleeding from the nose before fainting at a conference in Dublin November 24. He was discharged from a Moscow hospital Monday. "The sudden onset of the illness and its expansive effect do not coincide with any diagnostic description known to medicine," Gaidar's spokesman Valery Natarov quoted the doctors as saying. Gaidar, now head of the Institute for the Economy in Transition, remained unconscious for three hours. He was taken to an intensive care unit near Dublin and then transferred to a Moscow hospital. "The materials which underlie the conclusion say that the symptoms could have been the result of some toxic agent," Natarov said. He added, however, that doctors could not qualify it as poisoning because no toxic substance had been found. Following Scotland Yard's probe into the lethal radiation poisoning of a Russian security service defector, Alexander Litvinenko, Irish police launched an investigation into the Gaidar incident Friday. On Saturday, Irish medical experts said they found no traces of radiation in Gaidar's body.
