German doctors have confirmed that Pussy Riot’s Peter Verzilov was poisoned.

Friends of the Russia-Canadian activist had speculated that he had in fact been the victim of a poisoning after he suddenly lost his speech, his sight, memory and motor skills. Now, at a press conference held at the Charité Universitätsmedizin hospital in Berlin, doctors confirmed their suspicions.

Following the news, the Pussy Riot collective have issued a statement to confirm that Verzilov’s condition is improving and that he remains in good spirits.

“If you ask Peter why do you think you were poisoned,” the statement reads, “he most likely will tell you about the recent arrest of Igor Sechin, whether there is mobile connection in Arctic or not, about Marina Abramović and Ulay’s performances, and his postmodernist phantasies. It may be scary, but most of the time Peter still has his unique sense of humour. When he saw me and Nika Nikulshina yesterday, he said, ‘So good to see you without handcuffs.’”

“It’s important to realize that Peter’s life was in danger. He might be dead now if Nika Nikulshina was not around to help him.”

It was also confirmed that Verzilov’s poisoning took place in Moscow, Russia.
