In a shocking interview for one of the leading Russian magazines "Komsomolskaya Pravda", Boris Spassky mentioned that he was mistreated in a French hospital after being diagnosed with a stroke in September 2010. The ex-World Champion says that for some reason he was given soporifics all the time and isolated from any communication means - no phone calls, no Internet, nothing. He had numerous ulcers on his body from the pharmacology and thinks that it is not a coincidence.
When he requested to be transferred to Russia, everyone was reluctant. The grandmaster claims he was on the verge of dying due to this pseudo-treatment and luckily escaped to Russia with the help of his friends. When asked about the motives of the people who did that to him in the hospital, Boris said that, while he is not a rich man, maybe they were interested in his money in the case of his death.
As of now, Boris Spassky is planning to continue his treatment in a Russian hospital and to work on his memoirs called "My Chess Way".
We wish all the best to the great chess champion!
