Moscow: 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 had no reason to expect that the final findings of the politically motivated and extremely non-transparent process... would suddenly become objective and unbiased," foreign ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said in a statement.
