Putin ‘is not a human’ says Marina Litvinenko


We’ve seen the hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians fleeing the conflict. Now, a Russian woman with her own experience of loss at the hands of the Kremlin is warning Russians to leave their country.

Marina Litvinenko has campaigned against Putin’s government since her husband’s murder in London in 2006.

An inquiry into former KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko’s poisoning found the President was likely to have ordered the attack.

We spoke to his widow Marina earlier, hours after she landed back in the UK from a trip to Ukraine. She described the courage of the Ukrainians she met.
