It's not just in spy movies the Russian Government uses bio-warfare (a.k.a. poison) to silence its enemies. 

There's a rich history of it that goes back much further than the tragic London death of Alexander Litvenenko. Over the last few weeks we've seen Putin enemy Alexei Navalny 'probably poisoned' by a cup of tea. 

The Quicky investigates.
