Russian accused of killing Alexander Litvinenko reportedly dies from Covid-19
London has died of Covid-19 in Moscow, according to reports.Dmitri Kovtun was one of two men who a UK inquiry ruled had poisoned Litvinenko’s tea with a rare radioactive substance back in 2006.Reports from state-owned Russian news agency Tass said Kovtun contracted coronavirus before dying in a Moscow hospital.Kovtun, along with Andrei Lugovoi, was accused of being behind Litvinenko’s assassination 16 years ago at the Millennium Hotel in Mayfair.Reports said Tass cited Lugovoi, now a member of Russia’s parliament, as saying that he was mourning the death of a “close and faithful friend”.A British public inquiry concluded in 2016 that the killing of the outspoken critic of Vladimir Putin, who died after drinking tea laced with radioactive polonium-210, had “probably” been carried out with the approval of the Russian president.The inquiry found the two Russian men had deliberately poisoned Litvinenko by putting the radioactive substance into his drink at the central London hotel, leading to an agonising death.The European Court of Human Rights also ruled last year, following a case brought by the deceased’s widow, Marina Litvinenko, that Russia was responsible for his killing.Russia has always denied any involvement in the death and had refused to comply with international arrest warrants issued for Kovtun and Lugovoi.

Eurovision's tragedies - fatal plane crash, Covid complications and sudden death
Eurovision, the world’s biggest singing competition, is usually a happy affair and a chance to unify Europe with song and dance.However, after 66 years some of the show’s most iconic participants have passed and their legacy lives on.From the Alexandrov Ensemble Choir who led the halftime show to Michael Julien who paved the way to victory in 1969, some of Eurovision’s most recognisable faces still continue to make an impact on the show’s legacy to this day.Daily Star has trawled through the archives to bring you everything you need to know about the competition's tragedies.One of the biggest tragedies involved in Eurovision was the loss of 64 members of the Alexandrov Ensemble Choir.In the early hours of Christmas Day 2016, a Russian Defence Ministry plane went down whilst flying to Syria.Off the coast of Sochi, the crash had no survivors and 93 people were lost whilst travelling for a Christmas celebration with troops at a military base.The group, who sadly lost their lives on 25 December, had performed Not Gonna Get Us with t.A.T.u during the song contest’s interval in 2009 when the event was hosted in Moscow.The choir is the official choir of the Russian armed forces and one of just two choir groups that have the title of Red Army Choir.Örs Siklósi, the lead singer of AWS, performed with the band for Hungary during the show’s 2018 run.He died aged just 29 years old after a battle with leukaemia and his fellow bandmates released a statement upon his premature death.They said that their loss was “indescribable'' and explained: “In June, Örs was diagnosed with leukaemia.
