Russia was responsible for the 2006 assassination of former spy Alexander Litvinenko, which was ruled by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
A former Russian FSB agent was poisoned with polonium-210 in London in November 2006. He died painfully in the hospital three weeks later.
His assassination was widely recognized as personally approved by Russian President Vladimir Putin, who even pointed his finger at the leader of his deathbed.
A former agent fled to Britain in 2000 after critically speaking about what he regarded as corruption within the Kremlin. Russia has denied Litvinenko’s involvement in the death.
In a statement on Tuesday, the ECHR said: “Russia was responsible for the assassination of Alexander Litvinenko in Britain.”
