Russia Does Not Murder Spies Any More: KGB Veteran

Reuters reports that the head of an organization of former Russian spies was quoted as saying on Thursday Stalin-era policies of Moscow assassinating enemies had ceased, and ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was probably murdered by criminals. Former KGB agent Valentin Velichko, head of a Moscow-based Russian nationalist foundation called "Dignity and Honor," said in an interview with German Die Welt newspaper (in German) that Litvinenko, who died on November 23 from severe radiation poisoning, was a traitor but was not killed by Moscow.

Sean Guillory's blog features an ealier interview with the vice president of "Dignity and Honor" reprinted from the Kommersant.
