Russia criticizes U.S. ruling upholding Viktor Bout's conviction
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Moscow said on Friday that a U.S. court ruling upholding the conviction of arms dealer Viktor Bout showed that the case against the Russian was unjust and politically motivated, state-run news agency RIA reported.
"Naturally, this decision provokes deep disappointment," RIA quoted the Russian Foreign Ministry's human rights representative, Konstantin Dolgov, as saying.
