Today we will talk about the Litvinenko affair. Exactly one year ago, November 23, 2006, Aleksandr Litvinenko, former FSB officer and a friend of a run-away-oligarch Boris Berezovsky, died in London, after three agonizing weeks. Autopsy showed the death was caused by radioactive poisoning. Later, the British Royal Prosecution named Litvinenko's partner, businessman Andrey Lugovoy as the prime suspect and requested his extradition to London. But the Russian Constitution forbids extradition, and this ex-security officer, businessman, and political freshman is still living in Moscow and even running for Parliament in the upcoming State Duma election. Andrey Lugovoy is our guest today.
