Russian leader Vladimir Putin is accused of ordering that a former Russian intelligence officer be killed, according to a recent report presented to the U.K. Parliament.
Since ex-Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko died in 2006, there have been lots of theories but no firm conclusions from authorities. According to his wife, Litvinenko was on his deathbed when he blamed Putin for his condition.
He was poisoned by polonium-210, a highly radioactive material. It's the same poison suspected of killing former Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.
