Alexander Litvinenko & the Polonium Plot Part 2
Episode 2.11: Alexander Litvinenko & the Polonium Plot Part 2
Even as he was still clinging onto life in a hospital bed, Alexander Litvinenko’s death was being carefully stage-managed by his erstwhile employer, Boris Berezovsky. As a result of this PR campaign, blame for Litvinenko’s poisoning quickly fell on Russia. The Russian government became the target of British and international outrage, with President Vladimir Putin roundly condemned as having assassinated one of his critics. But was there more to the story? In the concluding part of this episode, we step into a subterranean world of Russian oligarchs, Chechen militants, and a very shady Italian "nuclear weapons expert” to try and find out: who killed Alexander Litvinenko?
