WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A US official said on Monday that intelligence agencies are indicating Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich and Ukraine’s peace negotiators were feeling sick because of an environmental factor, not poisoning.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Wall Street Journal and investigative agency Bellingcat reported that Abramovich and negotiators suffered symptoms of suspected poisoning after a meeting in Kyiv earlier this month.

The US official told Reuters, “Intelligence agencies strongly suggest this was environmental,” adding, “eg no poisoning.” The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, declined to elaborate .
