LONDON - Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is expected to meet British Prime Minister David Cameron next week, ending a four-year period during which Putin has had no high-level contact with British officials.

Cameron has met Russia's President Dmitry Medvedev several times at international events but no British prime minister has visited Russia since 2006, or met Putin -- widely seen as Russia's most powerful man -- since 2007.

The standoff shows the depth of the freeze in British-Russian relations that followed the 2006 murder in London of Kremlin critic Alexander Litvinenko, a former Russian spy who died from poisoning by radioactive polonium-210.
