That's quite scary really. You'd have thought an ex-PM might be a tad more untouchable than a former FBS agent.
If Putin is responsible, which seems to be a popular theory, it does seem like he's sending out a message. The question is whether he's untouchable. I might ask a bookmaker what odds they'd put on Putin being murdered or in jail in 10 years time from now. Could be a nice little winfall.
So?? Who gives a shit? And, for that matter, why do you give a shit? Was he some good friend of yours or something? Did he owe you money?
Why do you give a shit?
notice how Gaidar was so in Ireland...close to England...were all the poisonings have been happening.
its not FBS agent...its FSB agent

I cannot wait for more kind countriues to get nukes, it is gonna be so much fun as we slip inta another dark age.
Many nations had nukes for a long, long time ....and we didn't slip back into the dark ages. Why not?
But now it seems that some radical, unstable Muslim nations want nukes, and that's gonna' be a big, big difference. In that regard, perhaps your analogy ain't far off.
In point of fact it's Gaidar's daughter, herself a politician, who has been doing the rounds claiming her father has been poisoned - Gaidar's doctors haven't unidentified poisoning as being the cause of his aliment.
Moreover, the man's expected to be released from Hospital early next week - hardly indicative of Polonium poisoning.
Further to that particular issue, it's not in the slightest true continually held allusion that Polonium_210 is only available from Russian nuclear reactors. Canada also maintains nuclear facilities which produce Polonium, equally Polonium_210 does in fact have industrial uses and is used as such as part of various processes outside the former USSR.
One final point regarding the nature of the substance: radioactively speaking Polonium itself doesn't have the capacity to pass radiation through so much as a piece of paper. You put it in a container with the lid on, it stays in there without leaving radioactive traces in its wake, providing of course due attention has been used during containment.
Equally, if introduced into the human body it doesn't have the capacity to leak radioactivity out through the tissue surrounding it - the only way it can escape is through bodily fluids. Sweat, basically.
That being the case of course, it would be remarkably easy for anyone so inclined to leave a deliberate and misleading trail of its passage - providing, of course, those parties so inclined to look were provided with a distinct notion of what it was specifically they were looking for...
Don't y'just love this James Bond carp?
