Valery Kondratyuk, who in 2020-2021 served as the head of the foreign intelligence service of Ukraine, named the substances with which the wife of the current head of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, was poisoned.
“During the tests, they were discovered the following metals, such as arsenic and mercury,” Kondratyuk said on NV radio.
Ukrainian media earlier reported that Marianna Budan was being treated in hospital for heavy metal poisoning. It was also reported that poisoning was detected in several employees of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, who are also undergoing treatment.
Kondratyuk explained that heavy metal poisoning was not detected in the guards who were next to Marianna Budanova, but in “high-ranking persons, heads of individual areas responsible for operations against Russia.”
At the same time, Ukrainian journalists previously noted that Kirill Budanov himself was not found to have been poisoned.
