Litvinenko: Russians in UK feel 'unsafe' after Skripal attack

Berlin (CNN) The widow of Alexander Litvinenko has urged the UK government to do more to protect Russians who have sought shelter in Britain following the attempted assassination of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. A British inquiry found that two Russian agents poisoned Alexander Litvinenko at a London hotel bar in 2006 by spiking his tea with highly radioactive polonium-210. Alexander Litvinenko is pictured in a London hospital on November 20, 2006, three days before his death. His widow, Marina Litvinenko, told CNN in an exclusive interview Thursday that it was too early to jump to conclusions in the Skripal case. Speaking in Berlin, Litvinenko said some lessons had been learned -- but that more should have been done by the UK government.
