More on poisoning

The Washington Post has more to say about the Litvinenko poisoning. Apparently the St. Petersburg Russian mob is subbing for the FSB as Putin's Poisoners. From WaPo:

Mario Scaramella, the Italian who had lunch in London with a former Russian spy on the day the man was poisoned, said Tuesday that he showed the Russian e-mails during the meal that warned their lives might be in danger.
I guess Scaramella was right. Again the connections to Anna Politkovskaya surface.
In a separate interview later, Scaramella said the e-mails mentioned "dangerous people" behind the killing of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya, a critic of Russian President Vladimir Putin whose unsolved murder last month in Moscow has caused an international outcry. He said the e-mails indicated that those responsible for her death were members of the Russian mafia from St. Petersburg.
