It sounds like something out of a spy thriller, doesn't it? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6182804.stm
This case is really reminiscent of Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko's dioxin poisoning.

I also think the Russians were involved. And, no, they will never admit it. Remember, Putin is ex-KGB himself so he knows how these things work.

I really does seem FSB (ex-KGB) is behind this. All the Finnish newspapers at least are pretty sure Putin did it.

One thing I've been wondering about is the timing, though. I'm not sure how widely this has been publicized in the US, but a Russian jounalist, Anna Politkovskaya was murdered not too long ago. She was a very outspoken critic of Putin and the war in Chechnya /on Terror. FSB is believed by many to be behind this murder too.

To the point: Politkovskaya was murdered just before an important EU-Russia summit in here (Finland is currenly holding the EU Presidency). Litvinenko was poisoned just before an other EU-Russia summit last weekend. I'm not sure the government would time these highly public assasinations just before Putin has to present himself in front of hundreds of journalists and dozens of EU politicians, everyone talking about the assasinations. The timing of both murders would suggest that someone, perhaps in Russia, wants to harm Putins government by making them look guilty. Or perhaps Putin & co are just very cocky?

hummmmmmmmmmm.............maybe its one of those "double-bluff" things, you know - why would we do that, then put ourselves in front of the world at the Summit ??

oh and the Politkovskaya murder was covered in the UK - all very suspicious

There's a lot of speculation in the German media, too, that a renegade FSB officer might be behind both murders. It's hard to say, though. From what I've gathered, Litvinenko was very into "conspiracy theories", e.g., the ex-KGB was behind 9/11, so he may have just p.o.'d former colleagues.

they did it. they wont admit it. and my sweet aunt from russia thinks so too.

I definitely think they did it. / It's no surprise Russia's leader is also a former KBG member... (i'm part russian....so stuff like that definitely doesn't shock me..)

Radiation has now been found in some planes:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6159927.stm I think that will dispel any speculation that it was suicide.

There's another update: At least two more people, the victim's wife and an Italian contact, have been exposed to polonium: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/6199464.stm

This used to happen a lot in london, a long time ago. Russian spies used to put poison on the end of their umbrellas, then use the umbrella to poke another spy and poison them.

Last Friday I stayed at one of the hotels which has since been closed and checked for radiation

I was at UCH and they had sign everywhere saying that you could not be contaminated unless you personally had contact with him. People did seem paranoid there, who blames them?

To me it seems to obvious a way to kill some one I assumed that such an assination would be more covert. But who knows? I am def no expert.
