WikiLeaks: Russia Was Tracking Killers Of Litvinenko

Posted by Info on 13/12/2010

Russia was tracking the assassins of dissident spy Alexander Litvinenko before he was poisoned BUT was warned off by Britain, which said the situation was “under control”
The secret memo, recording a 2006 meeting between an ex-CIA bureau chief and a former KGB officer, is set to reignite the diplomatic row surrounding Litvinenko’s unsolved murder that year, which many espionage experts have linked directly to the Kremlin.

The memo, written by staff at the US embassy in Paris, records “an amicable 7 December dinner meeting with ambassador-at-large Henry Crumpton [and] Russian special presidential representative Anatoliy Safonov”, two weeks after Litvinenko’s death from polonium poisoning.
