The hospitalization of Georgy Shuppe is not aligned with Russia's interference. The businessman says this to RBC's portal.

Berezovsky's son-in-law quashes reports on an attempt on him by Russian special services. According to him, he was hospitalized out of illness, he stayed there for ten days. Shuppe was surprised that the local police linked his illness with the poisoning of former GRU officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

Shuppe stresses that his hospitalization at the end of December 2017 is not connected with any attempt on him. Earlier, The Sun newspaper wrote about the investigation of the attempt on Shuppe. He believes that The Sun's published article is just a "part of the panic."

Earlier Rosbalt, citing sources, reported that Scotland Yard is negotiating with Russian businessmen who live in England. Investigators believe that the poisoning of Skripal could take place with the support of one of the runaway Russian entrepreneurs.

The report on the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia with nerve agent occurred on March 4, 2018. A casual passerby found them sitting on a bench near a shopping center in Salisbury. They were hospitalized slipping into a coma. The police suspect that the spouse and son of Skripal were previously poisoned.

The British government intends to investigate the circumstances of Skripal and another 14 people suspicious poisoning.
