Think I'll Pass on the Chicken-Dioxin Kiev

More information has been coming out about the cause (thought to be the poison, dioxin) of the mysterious illness that has befallen Ukrainian opposition leader and presidential candidate Victor Yushchenko. ABC reports that the candidate's chief of staff now believes that KGB-type agents were behind a plot to kill Yushchenko.

Makes you wonder if this was only one of a string of similarly mysterious incidents, including the drugging and blackmail of Putin's election opponent earlier this year in Kiev and the 2000 murder of a journalist in Ukraine, which the opposition has suspected Kuchma of ordering.
