Russian hitmen strike again?

BBC News | Police study Georgia mogul death

British police have referred the death of Georgian tycoon and opposition politician Badri Patarkatsishvili to a crimes investigation unit for scrutiny.

Have the Russians learnt lessons from the polonium incident? Was the eccentric looking billionaire, Badri Patarkatsishvili, taken out, or was he just the victim of a bad heart or unhealthy diet?

To be honest I think it is unlikely that we’ll find out one way or another, however if I were Boris Berezovsky I would be looking at doubling the guard at my palace, hiring some badass ex-SAS bodyguards and start writing out big cheques to the MI5/6 benevolent funds.

Russia has been flexing its muscles in recent weeks, flying over a US aircraft carrier just a few days ago, and also violating Japanese airspace last week. Clearly the Russians have had enough of being treated like a has been power, and I would not want to be in Berezovsky’s shoes right now.

A few men made a lot, no, a hell of a lot of money in the wake of the Soviet collapse in 1991, most of them have paid dearly for it since then, one way or another.
