Was Romano Prodi the Top KGB Man in Italy?

On April 3, 2006, a British Member of the European Parliament (MEP), Gerard Batten, cited allegations by Alexander Litvinenko that Romano Prodi, former President of the European Commission and currently Italy Prime Minister, had been the KGB's top man in Italy.

"Don't go to Italy, there are many KGB agents among the politicians: Romano Prodi is our man there," General Trofimov told Mr Litvinenko.
