Sixth Russian Oligarch Dies Mysteriously After Toad Poisoning

Sixth Russian Oligarch Dies Mysteriously After Toad Poisoning

from Great Game India:

Russian oligarch has died mysteriously after being poisoned by a toad, making this the sixth Russian oligarch to die since the beginning of the Ukraine war.

In the ten weeks since Vladimir Putin launched his invasion of Ukraine, at least five Russian oligarchs have died in unexplained ways.


And now there’s another to add to the bleak list.

Alexander Subbotin, a billionaire and former CEO of Russian energy firm Lukoil, was discovered dead in the Moscow district of Mytishchi.

When Subbotin died, he was apparently receiving “alternative medicine” treatment for a hangover. Offbeat treatments are popular among Russia’s upper class, with Putin himself experimenting with a strange “deer antler” remedy.

Subbotin had visited a shaman who specialized in executing a “treatment” employing a venomous toad, according to the Telegram channel Mash.

The bizarre remedy involved dropping poisonous liquid from the toad’s body into an open wound

“They made an incision on the skin, dripped toad poison there, and after vomiting the patient allegedly got better,” according to the outlet. “They also called spirits, sacrificed animals and bathed in cock’s blood.”

Subbotin was said to have felt ill following the treatment, but instead of seeking medical assistance, the shaman put him to bed to sleep it off.
