The Ministry of foreign affairs of the Russian Federation labeled the report on the death in London of former officer of the Federal Security Service (FSB) Alexander Litvinenko to be politically biased and not transparent at all.
The spokeswoman of Russian foreign ministry, Mariya Zakharova, stated on the topic on Thursday 21. She told that the investigation on the death circumstances was carried out in closed-door consideration due to “top secrecy” and remained non-transparent for Russia and general public. The Ministry of foreign affairs didn´t expect the final report to be objective and impartial taking into account the “particular result” of the case deemed “desirable” beforehand. According to the British newspaper The Times, the final “public investigation” report claims the Russian Federation responsible for the death of Litvinenko.
