Summary

According a former French official who has had senior roles in internal security, Alexander Litvinenko, the Russian spy who died from polonium poisoning, was killed by US and UK special services. He claims that Litvinenko’s murder was a special sevices operation designed to defame Russia and Vladimir Putin.
