On June 15, the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda have published an interview with Andrei Lugovoy, who is suspected by British police to be the executor of Alexander Litvinenko. Litvinenko’s story was a headliner for the world media for the last eight months and is a still a headliner. Exotical weapons used for killing — radioactive polonium — as well as personalities of both the victim (Litvinenko) and the suspected killer (Lugovoy), ex-FSB officers both, keeps interest of media boiling.
For me, nonetheless, it was a shocking surprise to discover that my name was pronounced by the sinister Mr.Lugovoy. During the interview, he said that political killing is in stage of preparation for “some man, who has already obtained the image of a fighter against existing Russian authorities, he is destined to become a sacred martyr. For example, so-called oppositional candidates to presidency. They should hire themselves an enormous security troop… Edward Limonov, Mikhail Kasyanov… I think against them something is in preparation.”
