Boris Berezovsky, the high-profile Russian oligarch who became a vociferous critic of the Kremlin from his new base in Britain, died today.



A close friend confirmed to The Telegraph that Mr Berezovsky died at his estate in Surrey. The circumstances of the death remain unknown but the 67 year-old businessman is thought to have been found dead in his bath. It will inevitably raise questions about nefarious activities because Mr Berezovsky had survived several assassination attempts, including a bomb that decapitated his chauffeur. He was also a close friend of Alexander Litvinenko, the Russian dissident who was fatally poisoned with radioactive polonium-210 in London in 2006. Another close friend in the "London Circle" of exiled but influential Russians is Ahkmed Zakayev, who was also the subject of a plot to assassinate him on British soil.

Hmmmm, Litvinenko anyone?

RT is claiming "suicide"......

Figures.


Exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky has died at the age 67, according to a Facebook post from his son-in-law Egor Schuppe. Details regarding the nature of his death are yet to be released. His death has not been officially confirmed, and details have not been disclosed. According to Schuppe, Berezovsky was recently depressed. He failed to keep in touch with friends and acquaintances, and often chose to stay at home rather than go out.

This man wouldn't go anywhere without his bodyguards because so many attempts on
his life had been made. Now RT is claiming suicide.... what a crock

Vlad has had his liquidation squads out again.

Quite a few years back i was working on a property near his house in Wentworth, Surrey ( kind of golf course with multimillion pound houses). The security he had there was incredible, black vans full of large agressive looking men, guys patroling round the perminter 24/7. If they did manage to get him then they could and can get anyone. Presidents and Primeministers included. If he was hit then it must have been one of his security men.

Would that be the same property he bought off Chris Evans who had 'state of the art security' by any chance?

You might be jumping the gun there...just saying,,,I don't know enough about him, other than the cyprus connection....and anyone thinking that what is reported in msm` and anything the good people here on ATS can dig up on this or any other issue we look into are deluded.....there is much more that goes on behind the scenes that we will ever get to the bottom of unless you are a 'fly on the wall' or to put it in 'techno speak' ...a listening device.
Puts paid to all our bestest efforts on finding the truth about anything really....
It's late, I'm tired...I smell polonium.....but who GAS?

I wouldn't be surprise someone killed him. But like many deaths in the world we may truly never know the full story.

Yes i think it is the same property, though land would be more accurate. He demolished the original and built his own house there. Looked a bit like a scaled down Buckingham Palace. Underground garages and swimming pool ! His security was impressive though, never seen anything like it, he was definitly a worried man.

I've been thinking about this a bit, and here is the conclusion I have come to, although it is highly speculative. It was pretty much common knowledge that Berezovsky hated Putin, and would have brought the Russian government to its knees if he had the chance. He had attempted to smear Putin's reputation in the past as well. So what if, and as I said this is speculative at best, Berezovsky actually had Litvinenko murdered in a manner that pointed the finger at Putin and the FSB?

And then the FSB, simply tired of Berezovsky, finally just did away with him? Litvinenko spread a lot of disinformation, and while I'm sure he angered the Russian government and intelligence forces, especially since he was a fugitive, but I do not think they would have killed him. But would they have killed Berezovsky? This is a very complicated case, and I don't want to pretend as if I understand the nuances present, but it is definitely something that does not happen in most countries very often. I think that because Russia is so corrupt, even after the fall of the Soviet Union, things like this are going to happen.

The plot thickens.....

on one hand

There is no evidence so far that a "third party" was involved in the death of Boris Berezovsky, police say.

Earlier, the Russian tycoon's house in Berkshire was given the all-clear after it was searched by police for chemical, biological and nuclear material.


however


His body remained at the property while the search - described by police as a precaution - for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear material was carried out.

The search was sparked after a paramedic's personal electronic dosimeter (PED) - a health and safety device - was triggered.

www.bbc.co.uk...

in case your wondering what a PED is

The TRACERCO™ PED is attractive to workers who are not specially trained to measure radiation exposure, and it's safe to use to measure nuclear radiation exposure in potentially explosive environments, (Intrinsically Safe).

I find it really interesting that all the reports before the post-mortem examination where saying that he was found when his body guard came back from running errands (I didn't know bodyguards did that) noticed his phone had unanswered phone messages and then had to break down a locked bathroom door to find Berezovsky's body lying on the ground, and a few articles saying he had a scarf lying next to him.

I searched every Article on Google news After they Found that he had died from hanging, and although this is still ongoing, the papers are quick to mention the one thing they do know is it doesn't appear to be any foul play.

Its also a little odd that they are now calling the bodyguard an "employee" after the hanging revelation.

So I guess that would mean that he used a scarf to hang himself from some Unknown object in his bathroom, and after he died the scarf slipped and dropped his body to the floor.

What do rich people have in their bathrooms to hang themselves from that us poor people don't?

I don't know about this!

I agree.

I also ask why on Sunday (I think) the police were employing specialists in radioactivity to search the mansion? Looks like he was not found just hanging around. (Sorry bad joke)

But the point is, as they are now confirming, he died by hanging, www.bbc.co.uk... a pretty obvious cause so why the search for radioactive materials?

Was there only one bodyguard? It is a big house and I thought I read somewhere there were a lot of security guards around the extensive grounds? Also, why was he depressed at having debts, the property alone must have been worth a good few millions?

There has been a few too many strange deaths in the UK over the last year or two, plus one in France? Are they in anyway connected I wonder?
