Berezovsky Agrees to Pay the Largest Divorce Sum
Boris Berezovsky

Self-exiled businessman Boris Berezovsky has agreed to Britain's biggest divorce settlement to date, his second wife's lawyer said on Friday.

According to the British press, the sum Berezovsky's ex-wife is going to receive is the record sum in the history of British judicial system. The exact sum is not defined, but Britain's The Guardian newspaper reported last year that the settlement could be as much as £100 million ($154 million). Mr Berezovsky called that statement unfounded when contacted by The Associated Press. Many experts argue the settlement will be in the range of 270-360 million dollars.

The settlement was signed by mutual agreement. Mr Berezovsky didn't contest the required sum. He agreed that he had treated his wife Galina Basharova unfairly, so now she deserves compensation.

The couple met when Berezovsky was a Professor of Mathematics in Moscow. His fortune was built later, after he founded the first Mercedes dealership in the former Soviet Union. They were married in 1991, but their marriage did not last, and since the middle of 1990s Mr Berezovsky has been living with Elena Gorbunova who gave birth to two his children. He also has two children from the marriage with Galina Basharova.

In 2006 the British press wrote about a big divorce deal of another Russian tycoon - Roman Abramovich. His ex-wife Irina was to receive the half of his fortune - more than 10 billion dollars. Later that information was disproved. Irina Abramovich has received no more than 300 million dollars.
