Toxic Avenger 2: Unsolved Mysteries
Six months on, nobody has been able to put together a convincing Litvinenko theory By Kirill Pankratov Browse author
 
Page 3 of 3
 

A year and a half ago Scaramella caused a brief sensation by claiming that during 70s, a Soviet submarine dropped around 20 nuclear mines in the Bay of Naples. Few things could be more riduculous than placing a bunch of underwater nuclear mines (it's not clear such things even exist) there. Both the Russian and Italian militaries denied Scaramella's claims. Why the Bay of Naples? It has wonderful tourist attractions but no strategic value whatsoever. Could it be because Scaramella himself lives there?

I can name at least a dozen equally strange and comical characters closely associated with Litvinenko story. But in the end it doesn't help at all. Even after the British officially charged Lugovoi with the murder, we are still left with all of the same versions and theories we had before as to why Litvinenko was killed. Take your pick: Kremlin involvement to rogue Russian agents, revenge by a blackmailed businessman, Berezovsky's clique seeking to blacken Russia's rep, a bizarre suicide attempt, Litvinenko's involvement in nuclear smuggling. None of them are even close to water-tight explanations; all are full of holes and contradictions. The whodunnit is unlikely to be resolved any time soon. The polonium-210 isotope has a half-life of three months. But the poisonous effect of this story will last much longer than that.
