Litvinenko Investigation Turns To Identifying The Reactor Where Polonium Poison Was Produced

Shockingly enough, the focus will be on Russian reactors:

The investigation is now focusing on a trail of the material across half the globe, with Moscow heavily implicated in the dissident’s apparent assassination.

...

While speculation over the death of the former intelligence agent focuses on his vocal criticism of the Kremlin regime, identifying a chemical link between the polonium and its source within a reactor remains the most compelling and, so far intractable, evidence sought by the authorities.

...

Detectives hope to determine when the sample was manufactured through examination of its decay products while other analytical techniques may reveal further details of the facilities used. Ultimately, the use of polonium 210 appears to indicate a sophisticated approach by some well-connected and determined assailants with access to a reactor. UK detectives aim to determine which one.
