The widow of murdered former KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko wants all Russian agents expelled from the UK, following a report blaming the Russian state for his killing in London.
The persistent lobbying of her and her and son Anatoly led to the inquiry being held.
“I would like to say it was an extremely important day for us because, first of all, no one in Russia believed we would achieve this, and even here in Britain, it was difficult to believe we would finally arrive at this result. Secondly, that people who have committed crimes in a different country should never be protected by their own country only because there is a ‘no extradition’ clause in the constitution,” Litvinenko told reporters after the inquiry report was released.
Asked if she was trying to undermine Russia and the Russian government Marina said she was not anti-Russian but pro-justice.
