LONDON, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange said Monday he would soon leave the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he was given asylum in 2012.
Assange made the announcement after reports emerged about his potentially life-threatening heart defect and a chronic lung condition from spending two years at the diplomatic mission.
Speaking at a news conference in London, Assange said his condition had deteriorated during his confinement, not providing additional details beyond saying he was suffering from health problems.
He has been living at the embassy since June 2012 after a British court ruled to extradite him to Sweden over alleged sex crimes.
