A British inquiry has found that Russian President Vladimir Putin “probably” ordered agents to kill ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko in 2006 in London.
Litvinenko was poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 put into his tea.
Despite the Jan. 21 findings, the U.K. waivered about how to respond
while France leaned towards Russia.
French Economy Minister Emmanuel
Macron hinted at ending sanctions against the Kremlin this summer,
imposed because of Russia’s theft of Crimea and war against Ukraine.
