Former head of Rosnano Anatoly Chubais ended up in the intensive care unit of one of the European clinics with a diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome. This was announced on Sunday, July 31, by TV presenter Ksenia Sobchak, citing Chubais’ wife Avdotya Smirnova.

“I just spoke with Avdotya. The condition is unstable. It became bad, my arms and legs suddenly began to take away. Here is Anatoly Borisovich’s personal comment: “I was hospitalized in one of the European clinics with a diagnosis of Guillain-Barré syndrome. The condition is moderate, stable,” Sobchak wrote in her Telegram channel.

On March 23, it became known that Anatoly Chubais, who served as special representative of President Vladimir Putin, resigned from his post and left Russia. According to RBC sources, Chubais moved to Istanbul, but “was going to return” to Russia. The Kremlin later confirmed that Chubais resigned of his own accord. As reported, Chubais also left the board of directors of AFK Sistema and resigned from the board of directors of the Elektrozavod company.

Guillain-Barré syndrome

Guillain-Barré syndrome is a rare condition in which a person’s immune system attacks their own peripheral nerves. The disease can affect people of any age, but is most common in adults and men. The development of Guillain-Barré syndrome is often preceded by a bacterial or viral infection.

The first symptoms of the disease include weakness or tingling sensations. They usually start in the legs and may then spread to the arms and face. In some people, these symptoms can lead to paralysis of the legs, arms, or facial muscles. Most people make a full recovery from even the most severe cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome.
