Lawyers for the family of murdered former spy Alexander Litvinenko have accused the British Government of trying to block the truth over the killing in order to protect trade with Russia.

I hope Litvinenko's family fight tis hard. Polonium poisoning is a real biatch to go through, and from the pictures i saw of him, he really suffered
What info did Litvinenko have that couldve lead to his death?

The notion that a government would assassinate someone whom it regarded as an enemy in such a way that made plain who ordered the killing is so ludicrous that only a naive idiot would propose it. The death of Litvinenko was a false-flag black op by western intelligence agencies that was intended to blame Putin and discredit him as a world leader in the eyes of the West. The truth is that Litvinenko was turned by SIS, who guarded Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky and who supported his interference in Russian politics to remove Putin from power so as to clear the way for Berezovsky's return to Russia to resume asset stripping his country. Many of the Russian mafia who do business with oligarchs are involved in smuggling radioactive isotopes out of Russia to sell around the world. Indeed, it became known that Litvinenko was up to his neck in this. It was easy to get hold of polonium on the black market - it did not need the resources of a state's nuclear processing plant, as the myth was spread in order to create a false trail leading to Moscow. Litvinenko was poisoned in order to frame Putin and create a new cold war with Russia that would strengthen the Washington/London campaign to overthrow Putin and put a new Yeltsin in his place that would allow western companies access to cheap Russian oil and gas. This accusation by his family is yet another trick to maintain the myth that Russia ordered Litvinenko's death. It is ridiculous because Britain never pulled its punches in accusing Russian agents with killing him. Had it wanted to protect its trade with Russia, it would never have been so aggresive in its accusations from the very beginning.
There are several components of the sudden shift in the world’s energy supply, but the prime mover is a resurgence of oil and gas production in the United States, particularly the unlocking of new reserves of oil and gas found in shale rock. The widespread adoption of techniques like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling has made those reserves much more accessible, and in the case of natural gas, resulted in a vast glut that has sent prices plunging.
The report predicted that the United States would overtake Russia as the leading producer of natural gas in 2015.
