I've been thinking about this a bit, and here is the conclusion I have come to, although it is highly speculative. It was pretty much common knowledge
that Berezovsky hated Putin, and would have brought the Russian government to its knees if he had the chance. He had attempted to smear Putin's
reputation in the past as well. So what if, and as I said this is speculative at best, Berezovsky actually had Litvinenko murdered in a manner that
pointed the finger at Putin and the FSB?
And then the FSB, simply tired of Berezovsky, finally just did away with him? Litvinenko spread a lot of disinformation, and while I'm sure he angered
the Russian government and intelligence forces, especially since he was a fugitive, but I do not think they would have killed him. But would they have
killed Berezovsky? This is a very complicated case, and I don't want to pretend as if I understand the nuances present, but it is definitely something
that does not happen in most countries very often. I think that because Russia is so corrupt, even after the fall of the Soviet Union, things like
this are going to happen.
