Spy soup is blamed for Yushchenko poisoning

From Jeremy Page in Moscow



UKRAINIAN prosecutors are reopening a criminal investigation into the poisoning of Viktor Yushchenko, the opposition leader, after doctors confirmed that his disfiguring illness was caused by dioxin.

The inquiry is expected to focus on allegations that the chemical contaminant was given to Mr Yushchenko, possibly in his soup, at a dinner with top officials from the Ukrainian Security Service, the SBU, the night before he fell sick in September.

It will also address troubling questions about whether the poisoning was ordered by his rival, Viktor Yanukovych, the Prime Minister, or even by the Kremlin, which fears that Mr Yushchenko will pull Ukraine out of its strategic orbit if he wins a presidential election.

Mr Yushchenko checked out of the Rudolfinerhaus clinic in Vienna yesterday to resume campaigning for a rerun of the presidential runoff with Mr Yanukovych on December 26, which the opposition leader is now widely expected to win.
