Putin’s “Godfather” is Romaned Off

Boris ‘Not Good Enough’ Berezovsky is Dead. The Russian oligarch, who once somewhat foolishly boasted to have been the one who ‘made’ Vladimir Putin is reported to have committed suicide in his English home. He had recently lost a high profile lawsuit against another Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich. The New York Times is reporting that Berezovsky’s lawyer Alexander Dobrovinsky wrote in his  Facebook page:

“Just got a call from London. Boris Berezovsky has committed suicide. The man was complex. An act of desperation? Impossible to live poor? A series of blows? I am afraid that no one will know the truth.”

According to a Putin spokesman:

” Mr. Berezovsky had recently sent a letter asking President Putin for forgiveness and permission to return to Russia. “Some time ago, maybe a couple of months, Berezovsky sent Vladimir Putin a letter, written by himself, in which he admitted that he had made a lot of mistakes,” the spokesman, Dmitri S. Peskov, said on the Russia 24 television channel. “He asked Putin for forgiveness for the errors to be able to return home.”
