In addition, two owners of the yacht, where the poisoning occurred, and their employee, were sentenced to a seven years in prison.

The news message about the mass poisoning of Russian citizens in the Turkish resort of Bodrum arrived at the Russian Consulate-General at the end of May 2011. Tourists complained of nausea, vomiting and loss of consciousness. It was assumed that they were poisoned by poor-quality whiskey during a yacht tour organized by a local company.

Four tourists died at hospitals in Turkey, whereas a woman later died at a Moscow hospital.
