This story is just getting stranger and stranger. After murdered ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko made a deathbed confession pointing the finger directly at the Kremlin, the Kremlin has responded back and accused Litvinenko’s billionaire friend, Boris Berezovsky, a man who has employed and funded the ex-spy. Traces of radioactive polonium-210, which is what killed Litvinenko, were found at the exiled businessman’s London offices.
Adding to the mystery is the sudden illness of former Russian prime minister Yegor Gaidar. It seems that Gaidar came down with a sudden and quite violent illness last week, a DAY after Litvinenko died. While Gaidar’s health has stabilized, the cause is still unidentified.
All of this comes just a little over a month after the murder of Anna Politkovskaya, a journalist who was very critical of Putin and his administration.
