Former director of the Russian television channel Russia Today, Anton Kuznetsov-Krasovsky, has been poisoned. This is the same propagandist who called for drowning Ukrainian children, according to RBC-Ukraine's sources in the security services.

According to the source, the former head of the Russian-language department of the pro-Kremlin channel Russia Today, Anton Kuznetsov-Krasovsky, ended up in the hospital.

According to the source, the propagandist was "poisoned." However, the interlocutor did not specify who could be behind the poisoning of Krasovsky.

Krasovsky himself mentioned health problems; the day before, he published a post on his Telegram channel, informing that he was in the hospital.

"Here people were asking: am I alive? Is everything okay? Well, what can I say? At the beginning of the week, my stomach suddenly twisted, I started feeling nauseous, then passed out. They took me to the clinic. Gradually coming to my senses," the propagandist wrote.

What is known about Krasovsky's support for the Russian regime

Recall that before the full-scale invasion of Ukraine by Russia, Kuznetsov-Krasovsky stated that if Ukraine joined NATO, he would "burn" the Ukrainian Constitution on Khreshchatyk.

After the start of the full-scale war, the propagandists publicly supported Russia's aggression against Ukraine, justified the crimes of the occupiers, and called for the genocide of the Ukrainian people. In October 2022, during a broadcast on a Russian television channel, he called for drowning Ukrainian children in the Tisa River if they did not agree to the occupation.

"He said that the Muscovites occupied – and immediately threw them into the river with a swift current," Krasovsky said. Subsequently, he was charged in Ukraine.

In addition, a court in Ukraine sentenced Kuznetsov-Krasovsky to 5 years in prison with the confiscation of property.
