Public inquiry concludes that Kremlin ‘probably’ ordered suspects Andrey Lugovoy and Dmitry Kovtun to kill Alexander Litvinenko a decade ago.

Sir Robert Owen concluded that: “the evidence establishes that Mr. Litvinenko ingested the fatal dose whilst drinking tea from a teapot contaminated with polonium-210 in the Pine Bar of the Millennium Hotel in the West End of London, on the afternoon of the 1st of November, in the company of Andrey Lugovoy and Dmitry Kovtun. I am sure that Mr. Lugovoy and Mr. Kovtun placed the polonium-210 into the teapot at the Pine Bar in London, and did so with the intention of killing Mr. Litvinenko.”
