Mikhail Shirman (AP) _ Mikhail Shirman, 32, the leukemia victim who called Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev his ″murderer,″ died Thursday.
Shirman, himself a cancer researcher, had emigrated from the Soviet Union to Israel in 1980. He discovered he had chronic myeloid leukemia, a form of blood cancer, in October 1985. Doctors told him only a bone marrow transplant from a sibling could save his life. His sister, Inessa Fleurov of Moscow, was the only possible donor. But Soviet authorities prevented Mrs. Fleurov from coming to Israel for 11 months. She arrived in Israel on Nov. 5 and immediately underwent tests that showed her bone marrow tissue was compatible with her brother’s. But it was too late for Shirman. Stephen Morrow
