MOSCOW, Jan 21 : Moscow on Thursday slammed the results of a British inquiry into the poisoning death of former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko after the findings said President Vladimir Putin "probably approved" the killing.
"We regret that a purely criminal case was politicised and darkened the general atmosphere of bilateral relations," foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.
"We had no reason to expect that the final findings of the politically motivated and extremely non-transparent process, which has been skewed to achieve the predetermined, 'needed' result, would suddenly become objective and unbiased," she said.
She added that Moscow needed more time to study the findings.     ?AFP
