Two Years After, Yushchenko Poisoning Remains Unsolved

KIEV, Ukraine -- Tuesday marked two years from the day candidate Viktor Yushchenko attended a late night dinner with security officials during the presidential election campaign.


The dinner has been cited as the possible source of the poisoning that nearly cost the future president his life.

International and domestic experts have confirmed that Yushchenko was poisoned by dioxin.

Experts disagree, however, whether the poison was administered in one dose or over a period of time.

On Tuesday, Hryhoriy Omelchenko, a former security operative, now legislator from the Tymoshenko Bloc, called upon parliament to establish a commission to oversee the progress in the poisoning investigation.

Like most other high-profile crimes, Yushchenko’s poisoning remains unsolved.
