MOSCOW, February 14. /TASS/. Russia will sue no one over accusation of the murder of Alexander Litvinenko, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with Euronews TV channel on Sunday.
"As for any legal action, this is simply ridiculous. We don’t need this and the Russian Federation will never sue any country over some foolish fabrications or funny films," he said.
Touching on a report on the results of the inquiry into the Litvinenko case, the Russian prime minister said one cannot take seriously "some report by some retired judge, in which (I just took a look out of interest) practically every paragraph and each section opens with the word "probably,"" "What is there to comment on? It is an unofficial report by a retired person who offers his personal judgment," he said. "We, too, can write a lot of such reports or ask our former judges or academics to prepare some papers. They have no value whatsoever and so there will be no reaction to this."
He said it was regrettable that "the [UK] Prime Minister and the Foreign Secretary comment on a report that abounds in words like "probably." "This is reminiscent of a witch-hunt. When all is said and done, let it be on the conscience of the commentators," Medvedev noted.
In general, "we’ve had an unusual kind of relationship with Britain for centuries," he said. "It is difficult for various reasons. Due to time constraints, I will not analyse all of them although you can read about it in history books. Unfortunately, this is still the case today.".
