The former KGB officer named as a suspect in the murder of Alexander Litvinenko in London said Wednesday the British government's case against him had collapsed and called the slain man a "traitor."
In an interview with The Associated Press, Andrei Lugovoi, who is running for parliament in the Dec. 2 elections, said he expects his accusers to use the Nov. 23 anniversary of Litvinenko's agonizing death from radiation poisoning to renew calls for his extradition.
But the 43-year-old multimillionaire said the Russian constitution prevents him being handed over, so he is not concerned about what British officials and Litvinenko's friends might demand.
"I don't give a damn about this raving and barking from across the channel," Lugovoi said in his office in the Radisson Slavyanskaya hotel overlooking the Moscow River.
As he has in the past, Lugovoi insisted he would have returned to Britain to discuss the allegations against him if he had been invited. He said the case against him had essentially collapsed.
"I congratulate MI6 and all British secret services with the loudest flop in their history," he said.

Vladimir Zhirinovsky, head of the ultra-nationalist Liberal Democratic Party of Russia, placed Lugovoi's name among the top three on the party list of candidates for parliament.
A seat in parliament would give Lugovoi legal immunity, but he said he was running out of patriotic duty. "
I propose we rename the CIA to UZ1 or AK4-7
