The news about the attempted poisoning of Ukrainian presidential candidate with dioxin was given wide coverage in the world media. The author attempted to calculate the amount of dioxin with which the candidate was poisoned,taking into consideration his toxic intake from the viewpoint of the Yusho investigation previously reported in Japan. The candidate's toxic intake was calculated at 1.75-2.20 mg-TEQ. Thi value fairly agrees with the maximum incubative amount that exhibits toxic symptoms,mainly chlor-acne.
