FSB Attack On Russian Defector In London Censured By UK Police, Media

Up till now, not a single UK media reported about the FSB attempt to poison a Russian defector in London, Alexander Litvinenko, on November 1, 2006. Some European newspapers including the Austrian Der Standard covered the story in a few lines, according to a Russian news report.

 

The Scotland Yard is only brave in inventing stories about Muslim \"air terrorists\". Scotland Yard proved \"unable to find any record about the crime related to Litvinenko\" on Sunday, 2006, in an interview with a Russian newspaper.

 

Probably, they were all ordered to do their best not to deteriorate relations with the Putin regime.

 

Meanwhile, a Russian newspaper, Kommersant, published some details on this new FSB crime in the West.

 

The Russian defector and former FSB colonel Alexander Litvinenko was admitted to a hospital  with signs of toxin poisoning, the Kommerant says.

 

Mr Litvinenko said he was poisoned when meeting one of informers, who delivered documents about the recent murder of an American female journalist of jewish origin in Moscow.

 

Alexander Litvinenko needed the hospital treatment once he dined with his acquaintance, Mario Scaramella of Italy, in one of the restaurants downtown London.

 

"He sent me an e-mail from Italy late October asking to meet and wrote that he will be in London November 10 to 11," Litvinenko said. "But suddenly, he called me November 1 and, as usual, we decided to meet on Piccadilly Circus. We met at around 3:00 p.m., and I invited him to dine in the restaurant."

 

From Scaramella, Mr Litvinenko received a four-page document printed in English. The Italian was nervous claiming the document mentions names of the people involved in the murder of the American, Litvinenko went on.

 

Indeed, the document contained names of some officers of the FSB the defector knew while working in the FSB headquarters in Moscow.

 

"I ordered the food, and he took just water and was hurrying me. From the text, I understood that the mentioned people could have really arranged the murder.  We parted nearly at once," Mr Litvinenko continued. "As soon as I got home, I put the papers and was down."

 

Mr Litvinenko is in a London hospital now and the doctors are still unable to determine the toxins.  Mr Litvinenko said that his heart endured because he was actively going in for sport and that he survived thanks to cleaning out the stomach as soon as he spotted the poisoning signs.

 

According to Mr Litvinenko, the London police opened the case and he would be interrogated in detail once he left the hospital. As to the documents, Litvinenko promised to pass them to the police, the Moscow newspaper writes on Monday.
