(Reuters) – Russian opposition politician Vladimir Kara-Murza, who is currently serving a 25-year jail sentence for treason, has been transferred to a prison hospital, his wife Evgenia said in a post on X on Friday.

The 42-year-old Moscow-born Kara-Murza, who has both Russian and British passports, was jailed last year after he repeatedly condemned Russia’s war in Ukraine and lobbied for Western sanctions against Moscow.

His wife says he suffers from a nerve condition after surviving two poisoning attempts and has repeatedly voiced concerns over his health in prison.
