Ex - Spy Claims Litvinenko Was Targeted

Trepashkin is serving a 4-year sentence for divulging state secrets while investigating claims that the FSB and not the Chechen separatists were behind the deadly apartment bombings in Moscow in 1999. Litvinenko alleged FSA involvement in the bombings in his book "Blowing up Russia: Terror from Within", published in 2002.
