Russia fires nuclear missile at Britain - Radiation poisoning suspect named Lugovoi

Politics / Russia Jan 27, 2007 - 01:35 PM GMT

By: John_York


The richer Russia becomes, the more aggressive its foreign policy becomes. This is evidenced by the recent turmoil in the oil & gas supplies to Western Europe Russia cuts oil to Europe in response to Belarus syphoning off thousands barrels of oil . And the assassination of a critic of President Putins regime in Russia, Andre Litvinenko who died on November 23rd from Polonium-210 poisoning ( Russian ex-agent poisoned whilst investigating killing of journalist Anna Politkovskaya).

The media in Britain have named Andrei Lugovoi as the person considered as the prime suspect for the poisoning, to be named by British Police, who have spent the last 2 months laboriously following the Polonium 210 trail across London, on board flights right back to Andrei Lugovoi in Russia. (Radiation found on at least two BA B767 aircraft that flew from London to Moscow)

Britain have named Andrei Lugovoi as the person considered as the prime suspect for the poisoning

Andrei Lugovoi immediate response was "This is all lies, provocation and government propaganda by the United Kingdom," he said. "They are trying to make up for their weak hand." The Sky News channel reported on Friday that British prosecutors believe they have enough evidence to charge Mr. Lugovoi".

However it is highly unlikely that Andrei Lugovoi will ever be charged with the crime, as the Russian Prosecutor General's office on Saturday reaffirmed that Russia would not extradite Andrei Lugovoi to Britain. "A Russian citizen cannot be extradited to another country under the Russian Constitution," Said Natalia Fyodorova, for Prosecutor-General's office.

It is believed by New Scotland Yard, that Andrei Lugovoi & Dmitry Kovtun (two ex KGB officers), met with Litvinenko on Nov. 1, the day when officials believe that the lethal dose was administered in the Millennium Hotel teapot brought to the table where they were sat. This teapot remained in use for several weeks after the poisoning, and that its radiation readings were extremely high.

In an attempt to cover up the links with the Kremlin, Russia has turned its sights to other exiled opponents of the Kremlin as potential suspects of Litvinenko's assassination, so as to throw red herrings into the investigation and throw the the trail off of Russia.
