Russia dismisses Britain's Litvinenko inquiry as 'joke'

Moscow dismissed as a “joke” a British inquiry’s findings that Russian President Vladimir Putin “probably approved” the killing of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko a decade ago in London. Litvinenko, a prominent Kremlin critic, died of radiation poisoning in 2006 aged 43, three weeks after drinking tea laced with radioactive polonium at an upmarket London hotel. The inquiry said that Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitri Kovtun, two Russians identified as prime suspects by British police, were likely to have carried out the poisoning on the instructions of the Russian security services, but Lugovoi quickly dismissed the allegations as “nonsense”.
