>Breaking News/Red Terror File: Russian suspect’s ex-wife and children, ex-wife’s boyfriend hospitalized in Germany, suspected Polonium 210 poisoning


Russia’s state-run media outlet Novosti is now reporting that the ex-wife and children of Dmitry Kovtun–one of the three Russian men who met with deceased FSB defector Alexander Litvinenko on November 1–as well as the ex-wife’s boyfriend have been hospitalized with suspected Polonium 210 poisoning. Either the Litvinenko assassination was a seriously botched operation in which just about everyone who was party to the death plot is now self-contaminated, or the Kremlin is taking no chances with respect to eradicating its opposition and potential dissidents, blabbers, and whistleblowers, not to mention people who have the misfortune to be related to such individuals.

BERLIN, December 11 (RIA Novosti) – The ex-wife of a witness in the case of a former Russian security officer, her two children and boyfriend have been hospitalized in Germany with suspected polonium-210 poisoning, the head of the investigation team in Hamburg said Monday.

He said a medical examination will show if their organisms contain a dangerous concentration of the radioactive element. Authorities did not identify them by name.

Businessman Dmitry Kovtun met with defector Alexander Litvinenko around the time of his poisoning at the beginning of November. Litvinenko, an outspoken critic of President Vladimir Putin’s administration and a close associate of fugitive oligarch Boris Berezovsky, died in a London hospital after four days in a critical condition.

His body was found to contain a lethal dose of radioactive polonium-210. Kovtun is now reported to have been hospitalized with similar symptoms.

Investigators also said traces of polonium-210 have been found on Kovtun’s clothes and some articles in the former wife’s Hamburg apartment, as well as in other apartments in Hamburg which he visited from October 28 till November 1.

Representatives of the investigative team also said “they have almost no doubt that Dmitry Kovtun brought polonium from Moscow.”

British detectives, currently in Moscow for their probe into Litvinenko’s murder, earlier spoke with Kovtun through their Russian counterparts.

A team of investigators from the Russian Prosecutor General’s Office began questioning Andrei Lugovoi, another key witness in the Litvinenko case, December 8 in the presence of Scotland Yard experts. Lugovoi went to see the former Russian agent in London together with Kovtun.

    >Typical of Communists to even do in entire families. Just like their controlled drug cartels in Mexico. Just one more thing that makes them left-wing monsters.
