With NK agents willing to sacrifice themselves for missions, he was DOA whenever he gave little brother a reason. Seems money wasn't an issue for Kim. 1 more brother left/to go.

I thought this was much more recent but it's been over 10 years since the Litvinenko poisoning. Easy enough if a head of state targets you.

Guys like Khodorkovsky, Abramovich, Berezovsky et al are possibly tools in the pocket saved for future purposes if ever necessary.

The KGB assassinated Stefan Bandera, a Ukrainian dissident in Germany using a cyanide gas gun device that used a spring loaded piston to crush a glass ampoule of liquid Prussic acid/HCN with a screen to contain the glass fragments and propel the resulting hydrogen cyanide gas produced into the victims face. IIRC the assassin took sodium nitrate pills before hand, and amyl nitrate "poppers" immediately afterward to mitigate any exposure he may have suffered.
