MOSCOW, February 14. Russia will not be in court to prosecute anyone for the murder of Alexander Litvinenko. The Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Euronews TV channel, noting that reports based on probability judgments are associated with the “fight against witches and sorcerers”.
Lavrov: in the British report on the case of Litvinenko, there is no evidence
“As for any legal action, well that’s just ridiculous, – said the head of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Russian Federation, answering the question whether Russia could file a lawsuit against the UK, accusing the Russian President of involvement in the murder of Litvinenko – We don’t need it, and the Russian Federation will never haunt any country for the sake of a DIY or some funny movies.”
Speaking about London published in the report on Litvinenko on the basis of the so-called public inquiry, he stressed that it is impossible to take seriously “a report of some retired judges, in which almost every section and paragraph start with the word “probably” (in translation from English – “probably” – approx.)”. “Well what is there to comment? This is an unofficial report of a person who is retired, who gives a probabilistic judgment, – said the head of the government of the Russian Federation. – We also probably can write a lot of reports, ask Nalchik former judges or scientists some papers to prepare”. “They value no, and the reaction so it won’t be”, – concluded Medvedev.

The Prime Minister expressed regret that the document, “abundance of words “probably”, commented the Prime Minister, Minister for foreign Affairs (UK)”. “This is reminiscent of the struggle against witches and sorcerers. In the end, leave it on the conscience of those who says”, – said the Prime Minister.
Overall, Medvedev stressed that Russia and great Britain historically, for centuries, has developed a “unique relationship”. “They’re hard for different reasons… I due to the lack of time I will not give them the analysis, although it is possible to read historical literature. Unfortunately, it continues today,” said the Russian Prime Minister.
