Kuka tappoikaan Litvinenkon, eli uusin kokoelma ristiriitaisia selityksiä

Uudelleen otskoihin noussut Litvinenkon myrkyttäminen on saanut Venäjän propagandan turvautumaan vanhaan hyväksi koettuun keinoon, kokoelmaan keskenään ristiriitaisia selityksiä. Niitä löytyy ainakin seuraavat:

Venäjän mafia murhasi Litvinenkon

Indeed, Litvinenko, in the months before his death, had targeted several well-known members of the Russian Mafia with his blackmail scheme. That they would take umbrage at this is hardly shocking.

Litvinenko myrkytti itsensä vahingossa

 Probably, Litvinenko’s death was due to the fact that he was engaged in the smuggling of nuclear materials and accidently poisoned himself.

 Ehkä asialla kuitenkin oli Venäjä, mutta mitä siitä, kun länsimaat tekevät vielä pahempia asioita.

It is curious that The Post draws a contrast between Putin and Obama, whose government is supposedly above such criminality. The newspaper does not mention the U.S. government’s drone assassination program, which as of last year had killed nearly 2,500 people in at least three countries outside of declared military battlefields. Estimates have shown that at least 90 percent of those killed were not intended targets. None of those killed have been charged with any crimes. And at least two – Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son Abdul Rahman – were Americans.

Ja ihan uusimpana, Litvinenko ei ollut edes Venäjän vihollinen, ja brittien tiedustelu murhasi hänet.

Maksim Litvinenko, Aleksandr's younger brother who lives in Rimini, Italy, responded to the Thursday report by saying it was “ridiculous” to blame the Kremlin for the murder of his brother, stating that he believes British security services had more of a motive to carry out the assassination.
"My father and I are sure that the Russian authorities are not involved. It's all a set-up to put pressure on the Russian government,” Litvinenko told the Mirror, adding that such reasoning is the only explanation as to why the inquiry was launched 10 years after his brother's death.
He called the British report a “smear” on Putin, and stressed that rumors claiming his brother was an enemy of the state are false. He added that Aleksandr had planned to return to Russia, and had even told friends about the move.

Eikä myrkkykään ollut oikeesti poloniumia.

Litvinenko was murdered in London in 2006, when assassins allegedly slipped radioactive polonium 21 into his cup of tea at a hotel. But his brother Maksim cast doubt on whether that was actually the poison used, saying he believes it could have been planted to frame the Russians.
"I believe he could have been killed by another poison, maybe thallium, which killed him slowly, and the polonium was planted afterwards,” he said. He added that requests to have his brother's body exhumed, in order to verify the presence of polonium, have been ignored by Britain.
