Putin should be worried: A public inquiry into the death of Alexander Litvinenko announced in the UK

Great news from the UK:

The widow of poisoned Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko has warned her husband’s killers that the “truth will win out” after a public inquiry was announced in to his death.
Marina Litvinenko said that “no matter how strong and powerful you are” justice will be done.
Theresa May, the Home Secretary, had told parliament that a public inquiry will now replace the ongoing inquest in the murder of Mr Litvinenko, a former KGB agent, in 2006, as disclosed by The Daily Telegraph.
The Government U-turn means the formal investigation in to his death will now be able to examine whether the Russian state was behind his murder.
The decision is a blow to Russian President Vladimir Putin at a time when he is already under intense international pressure in the wake of the Malaysia Airlines atrocity in Ukraine.

Yes, indeed, this is a blow to Vladimir Putin, who most likely was aware of what happened. Justice will finally be done "no matter how strong and powerful you are", as Marina Litvinenko put it ...
