Asked if there was any view on the Russians’ behaviour post-Litvinenko, for example, their getting the BBC World Service off air etc, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister had made it clear that there should be no political or diplomatic bar on the police investigation. We expected co-operation from the Russian Authorities. The PMOS added that he was not going to give a running commentary on the investigation, but that was the standard which the Prime Minister had set here, and that was also the requirement from the Russian Authorities. The PMOS also said that in the past, we had expressed very firmly our concerns about human rights issues in Russian, and those concerns remained.

Asked if there had been any contact with President Putin about the case, the PMOS said that there had not been.
