After six months, a potential lead has emerged in the murder case of Russian expatriate Alexander Litvinenko (pictured), who died in England last November after allegedly being poisoned with radioactive polonium-210. However, the suspect, former KGB officer Andrei Lugovoi, denies that he had a hand in Litvinenko’s death, according to the BBC.
It sounds like the plot of a Hollywood suspense thriller, but exiled Russian multimillionaire Boris Berezovsky seems quite serious about his scheme to oust President Vladimir Putin’s Moscow government in a “violent overthrow.”
Alexander V. Litvinenko is dead after suffering an extensive illness he believed was caused by poisoning. A former KGB agent, Litvinenko had become critical of the Russian government. He began feeling ill after meeting in London with two Russians and an Italian security specialist.
