Synopsis >

If anything should happen to me, I beg you to show this tape to the whole world. On November 23rd, 2006, these words, spoken on camera by exiled former KGB and FSB (post communist Russia's dreaded new secret police) agent Alexander Sasha Litvinenko, became a gruesome self-fulfilling prophecy. After an agonizingly painful ordeal, Litvinenko succumbed to what was allegedly radiation poisoning from a lethal dose of toxic Polonium-210, surreptitiously slipped into his tea during a London meeting with two FSB ex-colleagues three weeks earlier. In POISONED BY POLONIUM: THE LITVINENKO FILE, filmmaker Andrei Nekrasov exposes the truth behind a crime that shocked the world and provoked a war of words between Russia and England that continues to this day.
