A police investigation has been launched into the death of the 67-year-old - a wanted man in Russia, and an opponent of President Vladimir Putin. A former Kremlin power-broker whose fortunes declined under Mr Putin, Mr Berezovsky emigrated to the UK in 2000. Thames Valley Police said the death, at a property in Ascot, Berkshire, was being treated as unexplained. The area around the property has been cordoned off to allow the investigation to take place, the force said. The inquiry was at a very early stage and more details will be released when available, it added. A South Central Ambulance Service spokeswoman said it had been called to the property at 15:18 GMT. "We sent a number of ambulance officers and an ambulance to the address. The 67-year-old male was confirmed deceased at the scene,"

Wonder who the heirs are.
Suspected suicide? Ruh roh.
Better get their best man, Johnny English on the case.
Wonder if he had vast deposits in Cyprus.
On of those suicides you see in the movies.....they have a harness they use to fire the pistol.
No messin’ around with Putin.
Or he had a better deal for his share of their Natural Gas and somebody didn't like that and wanted more...

Have you tried Kens it is wonderful
Probably. I assume Putin follows Stalin’s famous quotation “no man, no problem”, that is, kill him and the problem goes away.
I’m an early sunday morning food trip shopper - stores are empty and a breeze to get thru - and if either Weis or Giant have it, I’ll try some. Thanks for the tip!
This is a little off subject but somewhat relevant. I know a girl from Russia
Who told me several years ago she went to Moscow to visit. Her friends had a self-cleaning shower. She said we don’t always have the latest and greatest anymore.
It would seem Russia is still a country run by non-emasculated men so they are advancing while we wither in a nanny state dominated by women who don’t really want to be women and men who cater to them.
Except you missed the part, that we do not even make things in America anymore.
That is the problem. Bring back US jobs.
Well, I see the new Mr. Joseph Stalin is got his old KGB buddies out doing their thing again.
“It would seem Russia is still a country run by non-emasculated men so they are advancing while we wither in a nanny state dominated by women who dont really want to be women and men who cater to them.”
Russia is run by “former” communists and KGB who take no thought about killing people, men, women and children, who stand in their way. I’ve heard of stories even recently of Russian journalists disappearing, getting beaten to death with sticks, getting shot at their front door, taking a convenient dive out of a window, or getting put into insane asylums, because they reported on something Putin didn’t like.
He is a killer, and I hope that God takes revenge soon.
Visit Shanghai or Sydney or Kuala Lumpur or Singapore some time. You will suddenly feel very poor.
The USA is becoming a country of quaint old villages of retirees and crumbling cities populated by violent factions of official thugs looting wealth from one another in the name of the downtrodden.
I agree with your characterization.
However don’t forget to add the continued presence of agriculture also.
A beeber like device
I set my alarm on sundays to shop people think im crazy but im in and out love it
I think Russia has the shortest life span of any majority white country.
Why any FReepers say anything positive about Putin is beyond me.
That must be fun on the way out.
Unfortunately they are unfettered by a good religion. That’s what made us so exceptional.
There is a guy who wrote a sort of history of the rise and fall of countries. They go from their aggressive male dominated adventurous and inventive stage, become successful and then end up being feminized and afraid to do anything but live off what their ancestors created. Then they fall, usually because they’re overrun by “newer” more aggressive cultures.
Berezovsky was quickly running out of money. He used up his entire fortune supporting the opposition in and outside Russia. He seemed to sincerely believe he could be successful in fomenting revolution in Russia. His ex-wife took a lot of what was left and his loss in the court case against Abramovich cost him what little reputation and money he had left. He was down to his last million and for a former billionaire that had to be quite humiliating. He had to be under a lot of stress and was quite overweight.
Thanks for the correction. I could see why many Russians support him, just not any FReepers. I was unaware things have became far better in Russia.
Now I have to read up on Moldova.
He had to be under a lot of stress and was quite overweight.
True some Russians do die of natural causes.. though its very rare..
Usually they die with givernment assistance.. but some do actually expire..
I hear it’s a curse to die naturally in China.. most are fortunate enough to get givernment help..
Been that way since the year ONE....
I’m thinking he probably died of alcohol poisoning.

I had a cousin once named Berezovsky. Seriously.
Boy Putin is nobody to mess with
He has about killed off or exiled the entire old oy vey post commie oligarchs
I think he kept one younger one close to him he favors
Replaced the rest with his own more nationalistic wise guys
A tuff room no question
Beresovsky was in high cotton once
I woulda have enjoyed that life a bit
