The false information was noticed by political scientist Vladimir Kornilov, who published on his Facebook account a screenshot taken during the program.
Kornilov also pointed out the fact that on the day when the program was released Kara-Murza published on his Twitter a new photo from his meeting with Senator John McCain.
The expert reacted to CNN news with irony.
"How far the progress has gone! People in coma can easily meet with senators!" Kornilov ironically commented on the issue. "But CNN cannot produce Fake News, right?" It's all Trump's invention!" the expert continued.
Earlier, Vladimir Kara-Murza was indeed hospitalized with signs of poisoning — in late 2015 and then for a second time in February 2016. For a while, the activist was in a coma, but his lawyer said that his client left the hospital a month and a half ago.
According to reports, Kara-Murza is currently in the United States, where he undergoes treatment and holds meetings with congressmen.
