An investigation into the alleged poisoning of the karate fighters at the National Russian Championship, near Moscow, has been launched by the Rospotrebnadzor (Russia’s Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing.)
The Rospotrebnadzor is reportedly investigating what the participants of the recent Russian Championship were fed in the sports base’s canteen.
After their meal, seven athletes began to feel ill, with all of them being urgently hospitalised. The fighters were given medication and subsequently released.
The list of the poisoned men:
– Aydamir Umarov, 19;
– Ivan Laptev, 15 years old;
– Isa Fatychov, 15 years old;
– Alikhodzhiev Kerim, 17 years old;
– Tebishev Islam, 15 years old,
– Gasparyan Eduard; aged 17,
– Popov Vyacheslav, 20.
At the end of August members of the Russian national karate team took part in the national championship in Vidnoye near Moscow.
Aidamir Umarov from Krasnodar and Eduard Gasparyan from Sochi became champions in their weight classes, as reported by Enews112.
The news follows reports that Russian teachers who where sent to Russian-occupied territories in Ukraine by Moscow will reportedly be facing up to 15 years in prison, as reported on Tuesday, September 13.
