The European Court of Human Rights has ruled that Russia is responsible for the 2006 killing of Alexander Litvinenko.
Litvinenko died after he was poisoned in London with a rare radioactive isotope called Polonium 210.
The Russian Government has continuously denied any involvement in the death of Litvinenko.
However, the EU court said: “Russia was responsible for assassination of Aleksandr Litvinenko in the UK.”
The 43-year-old was an outspoken critic of President Vladimir Putin, who fled Russia for the United Kingdom six years before he died.
He died after drinking Green Tea laced with the Polonium 210 poison at London’s Millennium Hotel.
Putin and his Government continue to deny any involvement in the killing.
