Russian Viktor Bout, who is serving a sentence in a prison in the United States, has developed an inflammation. In this regard, his lawyer Alexei Tarasov plans to turn to the warden with the requirement to provide medical assistance to his client. The incident was reported by Booth's wife, to whom he complained of a high temperature for several days, chills and weakness.
“Two upper teeth became inflamed, the inflammation spread to the maxillary sinus, and green-yellow nasal discharge began. The ear is blocked. I am not a doctor, but it is clear that the inflammation has gone up, and, at best, you cannot do without antibiotics,”RIA Novosti quotes Alla But.
According to her, no help is provided to Viktor from the prison administration. Only paracetamol. In connection with the current circumstances, the Russian Embassy in the United States sent a note to the State Department.
Russian businessman Viktor Bout was arrested in Thailand in 2008 at the request of the American special services and sent overseas. Four years later, a jury found him guilty of conspiring to kill US citizens. No tangible evidence was presented during the proceedings. Booth himself and his defense insist that he was the victim of a provocation. To date, the Russian has served more than half of his 25-year sentence.
