Russia-Ukraine latest news: Russia ‘suffering huge losses’ as Ukraine fights back in Donbas

Dmitry Kovtun, one of two Russian men accused by Britain of poisoning Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko in London in 2006, has died of COVID-19 in a Moscow hospital, TASS news agency reported.

Mr Litvinenko, a British citizen and former KGB officer, died weeks after drinking green tea laced with radioactive polonium-210 at London’s Millennium Hotel, where he met Kovtun and the other suspect, Andrei Lugovoy.

TASS quoted Mr Lugovoy, now a prominent member of Russia’s parliament, as saying he was mourning the death of a “close and faithful friend”.
