Boris Berezovsky May Be Buried in Russia

Moscow is agreed to consider burying self-exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky in Russia if there will be such a requst, presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said.

      That statement was made by Peskov during his interview to the online TV channel Dozhd. The media also quoted Peskov as saying that Berezovsky was a very influential person in Russia in the 1990s but his role in the 2000s was rather minimal.

      According to inquiry of several influential lawyers, there shouldn't be any juridical obstacles for Berezovsky's burying in Russia, and the most important thing in this question is his relatives'will.

      Powerful Russian tycoon and Kremlin critic Berezovsky was found dead in his Surrey home in the UK at the age of 67 on Saturday. The cause of his death is currently under investigation. Preliminary suggestions that Berezovsky may have committed suicide were quickly quashed by those who knew him well.

      Berezovsky was one of the most influential figures on Russia's political arena in the 1990s, the so-called “kingmaker” of Russian presidents who, in particular, financed Putin’s rise to power in the late 1990s. However, in the 2000s he quickly fell into disgrace and then was forced to run to the UK, escaping several serious accusations on charges of money-laundering and illegal business activity.
