Putin “probably” behind Litvinenko murder in 2006
Russian President Vladimir Putin was “probably” behind the murder of a former spy Alexander Litvinenko in 2006, a public inquiry said on Thursday.
The former spy died at the age of 43 in London in 2006, days after being poisoned with radioactive polonium-210, which he is believed to have drunk in a cup of tea.
Chairman Sir Robert Owen said it was likely Putin signed off the killing following a long-running feud.
Litvinenko’s widow Marina said she was “very pleased” with the conclusion.
Speaking outside London’s High Court, she said “the words my husband spoke on his deathbed when he accused Putin have been proved by an English court”.
Home Secretary Theresa May is due to give the UK government’s response to the findings in a statement to the House of Commons later.
