Thursday's report on death of former FSB agent Alexander Litvinenko proves the UK's anti-Russian stance and unwillingness to establish the true cause of Litvinenko's death, Andrei Lugovoy, a Russian lawmaker accused of the killing, said.

UK Report Claims Putin to Blame for Litvinenko Death
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The British inquiry claimed that Lugovoy, alongside Russian businessman and fellow former KGB agent Dmitry Kovtun, deliberately poisoned Litvinenko by placing radioactive substance polonium 210 in his teapot during a 2006 meeting.

Earlier, Lugovoy said that he had passed a polygraph test conducted by the British experts that had proved that he was not guilty.

"As we expected, there was no sensation. The results of the inquiry that were announced today once again confirm London's anti-Russian stance, narrow-mindedness and reluctance to establish the true cause of Litvinenko's death," Lugovoy told RIA Novosti.

On Thursday, the British Court blamed Russia for Litvinenko’s death but could not conclude that the polonium-210 had come from Russia.

According to the politician, the scandal around Litvinenko's killing became a "convenient way for London to achieve its political interests."

"This was clear to me from the very beginning," he added.

Alexander Litvinenko fled from Russia to Britain in 2000. He died in 2006, three weeks after drinking tea with his former colleagues Dmitry Kovtun and Andrei Lugovoy in central London.

Following his death, UK authorities claimed that Litvinenko's former colleagues had poisoned him with the radioactive isotope polonium-210. A public inquiry into Litvinenko's death was formally established by the UK government in July 2014.
