Luke Harding of The Guardian describes Robert Owen, British judge of the Litvinenko Inquiry, as having produced a “strong report” in which he was not expecting to implicate Putin to quite an extent in the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko.
Litvinenko, a former FSB officer, was murdered in November 2006 in London. At the time of his death he was working as a consultant for British MI5 and MI6, informing the government about Russian crime networks. He was the “first person to say that Russia had become a mafia state.”
Luke Harding, foreign correspondent for the Guardian, joined Hromadske's Khrystyna Bondarenko live via Skype from London on 22nd January 2016.
