Litvinenko inquiry report describes sensational claims made by the spy, He said that Putin was filmed abusing underage boys in a Moscow flat the same flat was where another politician had threesome with prostitutes.
Litvinenko wrote blog post after Putin kissed the stomach of a five-year-old during a walkabout in the Kremlin. When the future Russian president was a student, he was filmed abusing children in a flat where another top politician had a threesome with prostitutes, Litvinenko wrote in a sensational web post.
The wild claim is recorded in Sir Robert Owen’s inquiry report as part of a long list of allegations made by the assassinated spy against Mr Putin after he fled Russia and settled in Britain.Litvinenko made the accusation after the president was pictured kissing the stomach of a five-year-old boy during a walkabout in the Kremlin in June 2006.
The inquiry report describes how the dissident claimed Mr Putin was a ‘paedophile’, adding that videos existed of him ‘making sex with some underage boys’. Litvinenko said that Mr Putin destroyed the footage, which allegedly saw him sent away from Russia for a while when he was a student, after becoming head of the FSB secret service. Sir Robert quotes Litvinenko’s blog in response to the Kremlin incident, which made the inflammatory allegations in broken English.
Litvinenko wrote: ‘The world public is shocked. Nobody can understand why the Russian president did such a strange thing as kissing the stomach of an unfamiliar small boy. ‘The explanation may be found if we look carefully at the so-called “blank spots” in Putin’s biography. ‘After graduating from the Andropov Institute, which prepares officers for the KGB intelligence service, Putin was not accepted into the foreign intelligence. Instead, he was sent to a junior position in KGB Leningrad Directorate.
‘This was a very unusual twist for a career of an Andropov Institute’s graduate with fluent German. Why did that happen with Putin? Because, shortly before his graduation, his bosses learned that Putin was a pedophile [sic]. So say some people who knew Putin as a student at the Institute. ‘The Institute officials feared to report this to their own superiors, which would cause an unpleasant investigation. They decided it was easier just to avoid sending Putin abroad under some pretext. Such a solution is not unusual for the secret services.
‘Many years later, when Putin became the FSB director and was preparing for the presidency, he began to seek and destroy any compromising materials collected against him by the secret services over earlier years. It was not difficult, provided he himself was the FSB director. Among other things, Putin found videotapes in the FSB Internal Security directorate, which showed him making sex with some underage boys.’
Litvinenko went on to connect Putin’s alleged paedophile past to the case of Yuri Skuratov, a senior politician in Russia who was caught on camera having sex with two prostitutes.
In the next section of the blog post quoted by Sir Robert, he wrote: ‘Interestingly, the video was recorded in the same conspiratorial flat in Polyanka Street in Moscow where Russian Prosecutor-General Yuri Skuratov was secretly video-taped with two prostitutes.
‘Later, in the famous scandal, Putin (on Roman Abramovich’s instructions) blackmailed Skuratov with these tapes and tried to persuade the Prosecutor-General to resign. In that conversation, Putin mentioned to Skuratov that he himself was also secretly video-taped making sex at the same bed. (But of course, he did not tell it was pedophilia [sic] rather than normal sex.)’
Sir Robert wrote in his report: ‘It hardly needs saying that the allegations made by Mr Litvinenko against President Putin in this article were of the most serious nature. Could they have had any connection with his death?’
