I don't know what to think about this story, but why is it being dismissed as nothing more than a conspiracy. The idea that Prodi worked for the KGB is being discussed on Right Links. The story is based on this statement from UKIP.
"Mr President, I should like to pay tribute to my constituent, Mr Alexander Litvinenko. Alexander was fearless in exposing the political gangsters that now run Russia, and the creatures of the KGB and FSB that still hold political office in Europe. For his bravery, he paid the ultimate price. In April, I made two speeches in this Parliament repeating allegations made to me by Alexander that Romano Prodi had been an agent of some kind of the KGB. Alexander told me that the key figure to understanding Mr Prodi’s alleged relationship with the KGB in the 1970s was a man named Sokolov, also known as Konopkine, who worked for TASS in Italy.It is possible that this is nothing more than a EU Sceptic's wet dream, but can we really dismiss it as such. We know that the KGB have always sought to infiltrate Western centres of power. We know that Prodi is a Left winger and therefore potentially open to working with the Soviets. He was after all the source of information on Aldo Moro when he was kidnapped by left wing terrorists. I am not saying that the allegations are true, but rather than we have no reason to believe that they are not true. As Chameleons on bicycles says:
After Mr Litvinenko’s death and the contamination of his friend, Mr Scaramella, as well as numerous aircraft and sites across the UK, it deserves wider investigation.How will we ever find out?
