The Russian news agency RIA Novosti reports that Boris Spassky is in the ICU Burdenko Institute of Neurosurgery in Moscow in a stable condition. RIA Novosti spoke with someone from the health facility, who said: "It is a cardiovascular intensive care unit but his condition is stable and does not cause concern."

More than a week ago Spassky was taken to the hospital in serious condition after suffering from a stroke. He's reportedly paralyzed on the left side of the body - arm and leg.

On October 1, 2006, Spassky also suffered a stroke, during a chess lecture in San Francisco. From this he recovered well. Spassky was in Moscow as a special guest at the Women Blitz Championship, together with Nona Gaprindashvili and others.
