"From the very beginning, just as it was the case with Alexander Litvinenko (former FSB officer poisoned by polonium in London - TASS) and [former GRU Colonel] Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, we used official channels to request launching procedures within the framework of the Council of Europe Convention and the Chemical Weapons Convention," he said.
