LONDON — The European Court of Human Rights found on Tuesday that Russia was responsible for the assassination of ex-KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko, who died an agonizing death in 2006 after being poisoned in London with a rare radioactive substance. Litvinenko, a defector who had become a vocal critic of the Kremlin, died three weeks after drinking green tea laced with polonium-210 at a plush London hotel. Download the NBC News app for breaking news and politicsBritain has long blamed the attack on Moscow, and the European court in Strasbourg, France, agreed. "Mr. Litvinenko’s assassination was imputable to Russia," its statement said. A British inquiry concluded in 2016 that Putin had probably approved a Russian intelligence operation to murder Litvinenko.

But are their efforts going to benefit humanity as a whole or just an elite few? Tech investor Jaan Tallinn, the co-founder of Skype, told CNBC that Silicon Valley's quest to live forever will eventually benefit humanity as a whole. "I think involuntary death is clearly morally bad, which makes the quest for longevity a morally noble thing to engage in," Tallinn said. Jon Crowcroft, a computer science professor at Cambridge University, told CNBC they'd be better off pumping more of their billions into climate change mitigation technologies instead of longevity research. But Tallinn told CNBC he finds the tech billionaire's efforts to support longevity research "commendable."

Legal experts see a lack of evidence — and other problems — with a Trump-era special prosecutor's latest case. But while the indictment marked the first overt sign of activity in months from Durham, several legal experts weren't impressed. In interviews, legal experts described Durham's case against Sussmann as unusually — even remarkably — thin. Prosecutors in Durham's office allege that Sussmann was, in fact, representing a technology-industry executive and the Clinton campaign. "Man, the Michael Sussmann indictment seems thin.

The grave of murdered ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko is seen at Highgate Cemetery in London, Britain, January 21, 2016. REUTERS/Toby MelvilleLONDON, Sept 21 (Reuters) - The European Court of Human Rights ruled on Tuesday that Russia was responsible for the 2006 killing of ex-KGB officer Alexander Litvinenko who died an agonising death after he was poisoned in London with Polonium 210, a rare radioactive isotope. In its ruling, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) concluded Russia was responsible for the killing. A lengthy British inquiry concluded in 2016 that Russian President Vladimir Putin probably approved a Russian intelligence operation to murder Litvinenko. "The court found it established, beyond reasonable doubt, that the assassination had been carried out by Mr Lugovoy and Mr Kovtun," the ruling said.

The European Court of Human Rights ruled on Tuesday that Russia was responsible for the 2006 killing of Alexander V. Litvinenko, who was poisoned with a deadly toxin at a London hotel. The ruling concluded that the assassins were acting as “agents of the Russian state,” bolstering a separate inquiry by Britain that found “strong circumstantial evidence” that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and his spy chief at the time, Nikolai Patrushev, had approved an operation to kill Mr. Litvinenko, using a rare isotope, polonium 210. Mr. Litvinenko was a former colonel in the F.S.B., the domestic successor to the Soviet-era K.G.B., who fled Russia via Georgia and Turkey in 2000 to seek asylum in Britain, where he became a whistle-blower and a vitriolic critic of Mr. Putin. He died in November 2006, weeks after drinking green tea laced with polonium 210 at London’s Millennium Hotel.

London (CNN Business) Africa's space industry has been slow to take off, but it's predicted to skyrocket in the next few years. Another South African company, Dragonfly Aerospace, provides imaging systems for satellites and is now working on launching its own constellation. "The new space industry has a lot of opportunity because there's a lot of growth," says Bryan Dean, Dragonfly Aerospace's CEO. Overcoming roadblocksMinoo Rathnasabapathy, a South Africa-born space research engineer at MIT, says the continent's space industry still has challenges to overcome, most notably a lack of resources.

(CNN) Russia was responsible for killing Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian agent turned Kremlin critic who died in London by polonium poisoning in 2006, the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) said Tuesday. The ruling found that "Russia was responsible for assassination of Aleksandr Litvinenko in the UK." "The Court found in particular that there was a strong prima facie case that, in poisoning Mr Litvinenko, Mr Lugovoi and Mr Kovtun had been acting as agents of the Russian State," it said, referring to the names of two Russian agents accused of killing Litvinenko. The court also ruled that Russian authorities "had not carried out an effective domestic investigation capable of leading to the establishment of the facts and, where appropriate, the identification and punishment of those responsible for the murder."

The British authorities said on Tuesday that they were charging a third man in connection with the attempted murder of the former Russian spy Sergei V. Skripal, who was poisoned in England in 2018. In the 2018 case, the British police said they had charged Denis Sergeev in the attempted assassination of Mr. Skripal and his daughter, Yulia. The pair were found slumped on a bench in the city of Salisbury in southern England, and it was later determined that they had been poisoned with a nerve agent, Novichok. Two other men — who traveled under aliases — have already been charged. The British police for the first time confirmed their real names as Anatoliy Chepiga and Alexander Mishkin.

A deal for Ka-52K helicopters would signal closer Sino-Russian defense ties amid tensions with the US. The Type 075 landing helicopter dock needs a heavy attack helicopter," said Zhou Chenming, a researcher from the Yuan Wang military science and technology institute in Beijing. "It's likely that a contract between Moscow and Beijing will be concluded on the supply of at least 36 Ka-52K helicopters to the PLA Navy," Avia.Pro reported. Beijing launched its third Type 075 LHD in January, and hopes to use the amphibious platforms as "mini aircraft carriers." "The Ka-52K deal would be a win-win for Beijing and Moscow – Russia needs money to support its defence industry, while China needs to buy time," the source said.

Social media users have expressed concern that a painting of Hindu deity Lord Krishna will be destroyed by the Taliban. Posts on Facebook (here , here , here) and Twitter (here) have shared an image of a painting depicting Lord Krishna and the five Pandavas, alongside the claim that the artwork hangs “in the Panjsheer Palace” in Afghanistan. A reverse image search shows that the painting is for sale by a Russian art gallery called art-spb (www.art-spb.ru/goods/17576). The website says the piece is named “Krishna and the Pandavas” and that it was created by an artist called Rasikananda. The painting was created by a Russian artist who said claims that the piece is from a historical site or a palace in Panjshir are false.

MOSCOW — Opponents of Vladimir Putin have alleged large-scale vote rigging in the country's election over the weekend, which looks set to return an emphatic victory for the ruling United Russia Party. Some 98 percent of ballots had been counted by Monday afternoon local time, with the country's Central Election Commission declaring nearly half of the votes for United Russia. The Kremlin hailed the result, saying United Russia, which Putin helped found, had confirmed its role as the leading party. The near complete results showed the Communist Party finishing in second, followed by the nationalist LDPR party and the Fair Russia party with just over 7 percent each. Both it and United Russia denied any role in the registration process for candidates.

MOSCOW—Russia’s ruling party won control of two-thirds of the seats in the Russian Parliament, a showing that will allow the government to enact changes to the constitution and bolsters the power of President Vladimir Putin. The result also reflected the weakness of the opposition led by jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny, which claimed that the vote was neither free nor fair. In the run-up to the three-day vote, which ended Sunday, the Kremlin has largely suppressed any opposition.
