Litvinenko murder ‘unacceptable breach of international law’
#Theresa May sets out limited number of new measures after inquiry concludes Russian state probably involved in killing
The murder of former Russian spy #Alexander Litvinenko was a “blatant and unacceptable” breach of international law, even though the probable involvement of #Vladimir Putin’s government came as no surprise, Theresa May has said.
The British home secretary made her comments as she set out a limited number of new measures in response to Thursday’s findings of the inquiry into the 2006 death in London of the Russian former spy from radioactive poisoning. The measures included the Treasury’s freezing of the assets of two men named as being responsible for the murder.
