Another outspoken critic of the Kremlin has died under mysteries circumstances. According to an article from Skynews, former KGB and FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko was given a “major dose” of Polonium 210. According to the article, Polonium 210 is only harmful if ingested.
Another article from Breitbart.com says Litvinenko believed he became ill on November 1st after meeting with an unknown Russian and a KGB colleague, Andrei Lugovoy, and later he dined with Italian security expert Mario Scaramella to discuss the October murder of Anna Politkovskaya, which he was investigating.
Before he died, Litvinenko blamed Russian President Putin for his condition and told him through a press release, that Putin has silenced him but he will never silence all the voice.
I don’t know about you, but it seems to me that you don’t want to be a critic of Putin. It appears Putin doesn’t take criticism well.
Everyone knows Putin was from the old school and according to reports I have read over the last year or two (taking away direct election for regional leaders, anti-capitalist prosecutions, keeping a tight hold on the media), it seems like he longs for the days yore where the KGB went to your house and shot you for criticising the party.
I guess only time will tell (maybe) if the Kremlin had anything to do with either of the deaths I have referred but I find it to be one hell of a coincidence that two very harsh critics of the Putin government have been eliminated. HMMMMM!!!!!

It appears that this investigation has now turned into what I would think is a nightmare scenario. According to news reports, 12 site have been identified as having been contaminated and the British are monitoring 26 sites including four British Airways planes two of which were found to have been contaminated. BA has alerted more than 33,000 passengers of the potential contamination.
Now it appears that the plot has thickened (if it hadn’t already). According to a report on Times Online, Mario Scaramella, the Anti-Terror expert from Italy, has tested positive for polonium-210 after being taken to the hospital. The test results show Scaramella had a â€œsignificantâ€ amount of polonium-210 in his system, more than he would have received from simple physical contact with Litvinenko. So now The Anti-Terror group in the U.K. are investigating whether or not this could have been a double-murder attempt. In addition to Mr. Scaramella being contaminated, Litvinenko wife has also tested positive. And to add fuel to the fire, former Pro-western Russian premier, Yegor Gaidarhas has also been the victim of ‘unnatural’ poisoning, however, they do not know what kind or how he was poisoned.
As if it needs to be said, but I think we have only heard the beginning of this soap opera.
