03.02.2015 - PUBLIC INQUIRY ON “LITVINENKO CASE”

Over the past several weeks since the start of the public inquiry on the “Litvinenko case” the UK media has been paying much attention to this issue. That is understandable. The journalists are (and should be!) trying to find out the truth. However, the volume of information they possess is obviously insufficient to make any conclusions. Especially so that some of the facts are being deliberately concealed by the British officials (there were reports that Mr Litvinenko was a SIS agent, which obviously explains a lot). As usual, given lack of credible information, newspapers circulate rumors on Russia’s alleged connection to this death.
