Alexander Litvinenko was just one of many Kremlin critics to die mysteriously. Was his friend Andrei Lugovoi involved in the poisoning? We follow the polonium trail back to Moscow.

“At the beginning of the year, Lugovoi started coming regularly to London”, states KGB defector Oleg Gordievsky. “He was obviously cultivating him”. On the day he was poisoned, Litvinenko met with Lugovoi, Lugovoi’s partner, and a mysterious man traveling under a false passport. It’s thought the third man was a trained assassin. Polonium was found in their hotel room and on the plane they traveled in. Russian journalist, Andrei Korolkov, suspects Lugovoi was used as bait. “He was someone Litvinenko would have trusted.” Lugovoi may have struck a deal with the FSB when in prison in 2001. It was a serious matter but he was mysteriously released early.
