'The bastards got me, they won't get us all'
The poisoned Russian spy breathed defiance at the Kremlin as the effects of a mystery cocktail pushed him towards his death last night.
âI want to survive, just to show them,â Alexander Litvinenko said in an exclusive interview given just hours before he died.
Too weak to move his limbs and visibly in great pain, the former Russian intelligence officer suggested that he knew he may not win his struggle against the lethal chemicals destroying his vital organs. But he said the campaign for truth would go on with or without him.
âThe bastards got me,â he whispered. âBut they wonât get everybody.â
