Litvinenko death - Russian faces murder charge

Lugovoi denies involvement in Litvinenko's death

Andrei Lugovoi, a former KGB operative, faces a charge of murder of Alexander Litvinenko by the British Crown Prosecution Service. Litvinenko, also a former KGB operative, was poisoned with Polonium 210 in London last November. However, despite the British Foreign Secretary saying she expected “full cooperation” from the Russian authorities, the Russians have already said there was “no chance” of the Russian being extradited to the UK.
