According to her, a person close to Putin’s entourage and reading this letter told her that it was a оль plea for returning to Russia ’. "I made a lot of mistakes, I understand how difficult it is to forgive me, but I am confused and beg for forgiveness," said the letter, from the words of this person. At the same time, he noted, without specifying: "You will never believe who conveyed this letter."
The guest of the program, the chief editor of Moskovsky Komsomolets, Pavel Gusev said that he believed in the letter. "This is in the style of Berezovsky. This is his absolute style. And if the country's leadership and our president would contact him, even answering him, he would consider it a victory and arrange a new round," said Gusev. "He is a physiological provocateur." He is an absolute genius of political provocation and is able to do it, perhaps better than anyone today. "
However, Berezovsky really wanted to return, I’m sure Gusev: "He would love to come back with a guarantee that there will be no landing."
With regard to the death of Berezovsky, the chief editor "MK" is convinced that it was "the natural death of a man who survived the most terrible internal crisis - a crisis of loneliness, abandoned by all." "The crisis, when from a rich man who could waste money, fly on private jets, he turned into a man who was supposed to consider the remaining small money," continued Gusev, "a man who was abandoned, in fact, and beloved women. The crisis of a man who understood the absolute meaninglessness of his existence, especially political. "
“For him, I think it was the most terrible thing — oblivion,” concluded Gusev. “With this death, Berezovsky reminded today (of himself), the whole world talks about him.”
Peskov told about the "ordinary letter in the envelope." The press found out about him in early March
Dmitry Peskov on Sunday had to explain himself more than once about the letter. “This letter was addressed to Putin personally. I don’t know if he wants to publicize the full text of this letter,” the presidential press secretary told Interfax, answering the question whether the text of the message could be published. “The only thing I can say is that it was a personal letter,” added Peskov.
When asked if this letter survived, he said: "I saw it." Information about whether Putin’s response to Berezovsky followed was not available to the president’s press secretary.
On the same day, on the TV channel "Rain" Dmitry Peskov said that the letter was transmitted "through personal channels." Berezovsky "conveyed through man." Where was Putin's meeting with this man, the press secretary does not know. “The person just handed the letter in an envelope; it was written by hand,” he said.
There seems to be no doubt that the letter really was. Thus, “Vedomosti” writes that in early March, a high-ranking official, in a private conversation with a newspaper journalist, unexpectedly began to say that Berezovsky wanted to return to Russia. According to this man, the disgraced oligarch even wrote a letter to Putin with a request to stop his criminal prosecution at home. It was about this letter on the day of Berezovsky’s death that Sands told.
Zhirinovsky about his last meeting with Berezovsky: for the sake of return, "promised to close the Litvinenko case"
In turn, LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky said in two separate interviews, Ekho Moskvy and Izvestia, that he “spoke with Boris Abramovich this year, in January,” and he was obsessed with the idea of returning, although he was sure that nothing will be released, and was "in a very depressed state."
“I rested in Eilat, on the Red Sea. And during the conversation with me, one woman said:“ And we stopped at the hotel in Boris Abramovich ”. By the way, I haven’t seen him since leaving for London. And here is a hotel nearby. And I I told my security officer that I would like to see each other. He immediately agreed and we had lunch together. Then he had the desire to meet again. It turns out that 6 and 7 in January were together. And on January 9 he flew to London " said the party leader.
“I made him an offer to start a campaign to return him to Russia. He very willingly responded and shared with me his opinion that he really wanted to return to Russia. I really wanted to and he was ready to return to Russia under any conditions. He promised to close the Litvinenko case (Apparently, he had an option according to which, in the event of his return to Russia, he would take such steps there that this case would be closed). "
"I spoke directly about Marina, the widow of Litvinenko, that he would tell her what needs to be done. Apparently, she had to give information about who actually killed Litvinenko. He had a plan ready."
"He told me that in the fall he had asked for it (about return. - Approx. Ed.) Putin, congratulating him on October 7 on his birthday. From London he sent a letter, and there he expressed this idea. He said that he was ready for any conditions, he stressed this several times. All that Moscow and the Kremlin would tell him was that he would do it all - just to return. The only thing was that his decree of pardon was to close all criminal cases. He was not going to deal with politics anymore. to lead one or two economic projects here in his homeland. Everything else needs him lo. "
At the same time, according to Zhirinovsky, Berezovsky said several times: "I hardly think they will forgive me." "He was depressed, very depressed. Eyes faded. Apparently, fatigue has been there (in the UK. - Ed.) For so long, almost 13 years. And he was disappointed, apparently, in London, in Britain."
"Still, the return to his homeland - she overpowered all his possible offenses. And his role ... Well, he wanted to leave his name somehow. This is apparently Yeltsin's daughter (Tatyana Dyachenko. - Ed.) gave some hope that through it you can influence, "said Zhirinovsky.
Returning to Russia, the politician conveyed information "through his channels." "But I could not pedal the topic, because I understood that everyone there knows - about my meeting with Berezovsky and his requests. They have a lot of other things there. But, maybe, the procedure would start soon," ruled Zhirinovsky.
