LONDON – Moscow on Thursday dismissed as a joke a British inquiry's findings that Russian President Vladimir Putin probably approved the killing of ex-spy Alexander Litvinenko a decade ago in London.
Litvinenko – a prominent Kremlin critic, died of radiation poisoning in 2006 aged 43, three weeks after drinking tea laced with radioactive polonium at an upmarket London hotel.
