Russian TV host who urged drowning Ukrainian kids now possibly poisoned

Russian propagandist Anton Krasovsky, who advocated genocide against Ukrainians and the murder of Ukrainian children, has allegedly been poisoned, according to multiple Ukrainian media outlets citing sources within Ukraine’s intelligence community.

Anton Krasovsky has been hospitalized for nearly a week due to severe stomach pain and nausea, followed by fainting, as he revealed on Telegram. 

“They took me to the clinic. Gradually coming to my senses,” wrote the propagandist. 

Ukrainian intelligence sources suggest he was poisoned, reported by Ukrainian Pravda. 

“A person who did wrong things felt unwell on Christmas,” a source noted

Meanwhile, according to the Ukrainian publication NV, Krasovsky’s condition is deteriorating, and he has not written his latest messages on Telegram. 

In October 2022, Anton Krasovsky, then the director of programming at the Russian state-funded TV channel RT, called for the genocide of Ukrainians and the killing of Ukrainian children. Later, he was reportedly fired for that.

“[Ukrainian children] should have been drowned in the Tysyna [river], right there, where the duckling swims. Just drown those children, drown them right in Tysyna [river]… Whoever says that Russia occupied them, you throw them in the river with a strong undercurrent… Shove them right into those huts and burn them up… [Ukraine] is not supposed to exist at all,” Anton Krasovskyi said on 23 October 2022.

In February 2023, a Ukrainian court convicted Krasovsky in absentia for publicly inciting genocide and attempting to overthrow Ukraine’s constitutional order. He received a five-year prison sentence.
