MOSCOW, September 20 (Itar-Tass) —— The Litvinenko affair does not reflect the dynamics of Russian-British relations, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said about the court session in London devoted to the circumstances of former FSB officer Alexander Litvinenko’s death.
“If a decision has been made to resume the trial, we hope that it will produce an exhaustive picture and give a chance to clear up all facts. The Prosecutor-General’s Office has been working along these lines,” Lukashevich said. At the same time he made it clear that the question of Russian citizen Andrei Lugovoi’s alleged complicity was “largely closed” for Moscow.
“He has taken a polygraph test. There can be no more questions. The man volunteered to take such a step to prove his innocence,” the diplomat said.
The Litvinenko affair is a complex one, but it is just one of many others in Russian-British relations.
“Our relations have other aspects,” Lukashevich said. “It would be wrong to think that this session is the key element that highlights bilateral relations.”
