    (August 30, 1962-November 23, 2006)
    Born in Voronezh, Russian Federation
    Officer in the KGB and its successor the FSB (1986-99)
    Granted asylum in Great Britain (2001)
    Critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin
    Claimed bombings in Moscow blamed on Chechen rebels were being performed by the FSB
    Died from poisoning by radioactive polonium-210
    He was arrested for allegedly beating detainees during an anti-terrorist campaign (1999).
    He was released from prison after signing a pledge not to leave the country, then fled to Turkey with a forged passport.
    He claimed, apparently without evidence, that Putin is a pedophile.
    There have been suggestions that he was contaminated while participating in a polonium smuggling ring.
    He converted to Islam on his deathbed to show his solidarity with the Chechen people.
    He was allegedly on a hit list of people being targeted by the FSB for assassination.
    A colleague, Andrey Limarev, disappeared in the French Alps after saying he ‘would be next’ (December 12, 2006).
    He is one of more than a dozen opponents of Putin to die in suspicious circumstances.
    His friends suggested polonium was chosen as the poison ‘to trigger a slow, torturous and spectacular demise’ that would serve as a warning to others.
