[Russia]–President Vladimir Putin has been accused of orchestrating two failed murder attempts by a political activist.

Vladimir Kara-Murza, who has been a vocal opponent of Putin’s administration, organising protests against the controversial president, stated that the first attempt on his life was in May of 2015.

According to Kara-Murza, during a meeting with colleagues in Moscow he started to get unwell.

“Then I don’t remember anything for the next month,” he said.

Though his blood was tested in France and no trace of poison found, Kara-Murza insisted he was poisoned.

He said: “I have absolutely no doubt that this was a deliberate poisoning, that it was intended to kill because, as I mentioned already, the doctors told my wife that it’s about a 5% chance of survival. And when it’s that kind of chance, it’s not to scare. It’s to kill.”

However, his return to Russia did not fix issues, as he was soon poisoned again in March this year.

According to his wife Yevgenia, there are no doubts about the second attack.

Until his claim, he was deputy chairman of the Parnas liberal party led by former prime minister turned Kremlin critic Mikhail Kasyanov.
