Spassky’s Mystery

leave a comment »

What has happened to Boris Spassky???.According to the Russian newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda” he had to escape from his home near Paris where he ,apparently, was kept under seclusion . He gives no names but said that after his stroke two years ago instead of being treated he had been stuffed with drugs. Apparently he was sent home but there somebody cut all his contacts off keeping him as if he were under arrest. In the interview Boris said he had to restore to “friends” who managed to obtain a single use passport which allowed him to travel to Russia. He also stated that at his near Paris home,once back from hospital, he  found he had no Internet, no possibility of communication and that he has been deprived all his documents, the French and the Russian.

I began my contacts with Boris in 1997. In 2007 he and his wife visited my home own and spent a wonderful time. Then we maintained our contacts. But two years ago, Boris disappeared: no phone calls, no answer to my written letters and no answer to my many e-mails. At first I thought it could be due to his stroke. But apparently this story paints a different scenery…Many things could be written but most of them would be subjective, personal interpretations. So no place , no moment. I am trying to contact him, but so far to no avail. If any reader could help me I would be very grateful to him/her. I feel for my friend Boris and the piece of news has left me very sad.  Final word: in 2007, he told me some things I did not pay too much attention to. Now I understand though I still have more questions than answers.

P.S. A new “dramatis persona” enters: Boris Spassky’s younger sister joins the ceremony of confussion. Now I must admit I understand absolutely nothing…(!). In any case, where is  Boris Spassky??
