A Pussy Riot protester is fighting for his life after he was allegedly poisoned after a protest during the World Cup in Russia.

Pyotr Verzilov, one of the founding members of Pussy Riot, is in "serious condition" in a Moscow hospital and doctors allegedly refuse to give details of his status to his family and girlfriend.

Pussy Riot on Thursday expressed deep concern over the suspected poisoning of Verzilov, a prominent enemy of Vladimir Putin.

The 30-year-old girl fell into a coma after being taken to hospital, family members say.

His model girlfriend of 21 years, Veronika & # 39; Nika & # 39; Nikulshina called doctors after he went into "seizures" and became "delirious" on Tuesday.

Nikulshina, who is also a member of Pussy Riot, said that Verzilov's symptoms include loss of sight and the ability to speak.

"When the ambulance arrived, he answered his questions and said no to everything: he did not eat anything, he did not take any medication," he said.

"He was getting worse quickly, he had seizures." On the way to the ambulance he began to rave.

"He was in a kind of semi-conscious condition, he stopped recognizing me."

He was transferred to the toxicology department, but the doctors refused to explain anything to Nikulshina about the suspected poisoning because "the state of a girlfriend does not give me any rights."

They just told him that his condition was "serious".

But Verzilov's mother was also prevented from seeing her son.

"They told him they were not allowed to reveal any information," said one relative.

"They were rude and they sent her away." They said they could not let her in.
