Antonio Valdes-Garcia, a Spanish citizen who used to head an oil company affiliated with the embattled Russian oil major Yukos is in hospital after a brutal attack, the Interfax news agency report.

The agency said that the former director of the Fargoil company was transferred to a Moscow hospital on Aug. 19 after spending 12 days in a hospital in the Moscow suburban town of Istra. Doctors described Valdes-Garcia’s state as “satisfactory” saying that he had suffered a head injury, concussion and multiple fractures of both legs.

“It is not known what caused the injuries,” doctors said.
A bad fall, I'm sure.
Valdes-Garcia was detained by Russian prosecutors in June and some reports said that he agreed to cooperate with investigators in exchange for protection.
Some protection. Or maybe the just went for a pee in the right moment, if ya know what I mean...
