Before      After
Thursday 23: In London – Alexander Valterovich Litvinenko (Алекса́ндр Ва́льтерович Литвине́нко; IPA: [ɐlʲɪˈksandr ˈvaltərəvʲɪtɕ lʲɪtvʲɪˈnʲɛnkə] (an ex-KGB/FSB-agent who, from 2003, had worked as a British MI6 informant) dies in the University College hospital after he is poisoned on November 1 at the Millennium hotel in central London with radio-active polonium 210 in a cup of Green tea by two Russian agents (Andrei Lugovoi and Dmitry Kovtun, to prevent him exposing the links between previous FSB-head Vladimir Putin and the Tambov-Malyshev Russian mafia, in heroin smuggling among other) and so is assassinated, leaving his courageous wife Marina and 12-year-old son Anatoly.
22 May 2007   Britain's director of public prosecutions decides Mr Lugovoi should be charged with the murder of Mr Litvinenko
31 May 2007   Mr Lugovoi denies any involvement in his death but says Mr Litvinenko was a British spy
5 July 2007   Russia officially refuses to extradite Mr Lugovoi, saying its constitution does not allow it
May-June 2013   Inquest into Mr Litvinenko's death delayed as coroner decides a public inquiry would be preferable, as it would be able to hear some evidence in secret
July 2013   Ministers rule out public inquiry
Jan 2014   Marina Litvinenko in High Court fight to force a public inquiry
11 Feb 2014   High Court says the Home Office had been wrong to rule out an inquiry before the outcome of an inquest
July 2014   Public inquiry announced by Home Office
Putin's assassination
of AV Litvinenko for
trying to expose his
corruption inside the FSB.
March 2015, in London, Italian newspaper editor and politician Paolo Guzzanti says to the enquiry that he believes Litvinenko was murdered by the Kremlin because he was helping Italian authorities assess a series of Soviet and Russian intelligence operations in the country. Guzzanti was speaking as the former president of the so-called Mitrokhin Commission, a parliamentary board set up in 2002 to investigate past intelligence operations by the Soviet KGB in Italy. Guzzanti told the London inquiry that Litvinenko had cooperated with the Mitrokhin Committee and had shared information with one of its consultants, Mario Scaramella, about ongoing attempts by Russia's FSB to organize terrorist strikes in Italy, transporting weapons from Ukraine to Italy in order to assassinate Guzzanti and thus sabotage the work of the Mitrokhin Committee. Scaramella therefore accused Alexander Talik, a Ukrainian former officer of the KGB who lived in Naples, Italy, of helping Russian intelligence operatives smuggle guns into the country. Talik and a number of his accomplices were promptly arrested by Italian authorities after they found several weapons and grenades in their possession. According to Guzzanti, Litvinenkoís role in stopping the alleged assassination attempt against him and other members of the Mitrokhin Committee was what led to the Kremlinís decision to murder the former KGB spy.

Sunday 3: In Israel – The Israeli Cabinet decides to hand control of the village of Ghajar (which is split by the Israel-Lebanon border but whose citizens are now all Israelis, in terms of Israel's 1981 Golan Heights Law) to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNFIL).
