Buzz Feed: Poison in the System
When a financier dropped dead in Britain shortly after exposing a vast Russian crime, police said it was not suspicious. But with his inquest now underway, BuzzFeed News has uncovered explosive evidence of a suspected Kremlin assassination plot – and a secret assignation in Paris on the eve of his death – that the British authorities have sidelined.

Update: American spies believe Russian whistle blower was assassinated on ‘direct orders of Vladimir Putin’ (iNews).
WNU Editor: The Buzz Feed article is making quite a claim on a death that occurred 5 years ago. And aside from the headline .... when you read what BuzzFeed has posted .... a post that is poorly written .... you are only left with the impression that a few "highly placed" anonymous sources believe that Alexander Perepilichnyy was killed because of a money laundering scheme .... but conveniently give no evidence to validate their claim. A police inquest found no wrongdoing .... Alexander Perepilichnyy inquest: 'No evidence' of poisoning (BBC). More here .... No evidence Russian whistleblower was poisoned, police say (The Guardian). So why the interest in a death of someone 5 years ago? You ask me.
