A British judge has published a report on the 2006 death of former Russian agent Alexander Litvinenko, saying President Vladimir Putin probably approved a plan by the Russian security service to kill him with poison
Almost a decade after former KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko lay dying in a London hospital bed, a British judge has concluded who poisoned him: two Russian men, acting at the behest of Russia's security services, probably with approval from President Vladimir Putin.
"The conclusion that the murder was authorised at the highest levels of the Russian state is extremely disturbing," said Cameron's spokeswoman.
A British inquiry into the death by radiation poisoning of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko in London found that Russian President Vladimir Putin "probably approved" of it.
The use of Po-210 for killing a human being has been made earlier as well.
Logovoi alleged the British inquest has been influenced by Boris Berezovsky, a flamboyant and outspoken Russian oligarch in London exile, who had close ties to Litvinenko. Lugovoi says Berezovsky was involved in the poisoning, a charge Berezosvky has denied.
