Chubais, ex-adviser to Putin, hospitalized in Europe, according to a journalist
LONDON (Reuters) – Vladimir Putin’s former special representative to international organisations, Anatoli Chubais, who left his post due to the war in Ukraine, has been hospitalized in Europe with an acute inflammatory autoimmune disease rare, reported a Russian journalist.
Anatoly Chubais has Guillain-Barré syndrome, a disease caused by the immune system that damages the peripheral nervous system, Russian journalist and political activist Ksenia Sobchak reported on Telegram.
The former finance minister and chief of staff under the presidency of Boris Yeltsin could not be reached immediately and his place of hospitalization in Europe was not known.
Before his resignation in March, Anatoly Chubais, 67, was President Vladimir Putin’s special representative for relations with international organizations.
Anatoly Chubais was part of a powerful group of Russian economists who sought to cement the transition to capitalism after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.
