The order for the murder of the browser “Novaya Gazeta” Anna Politkovskaya in October 2006 may have been ordered from London, and the journalist often have settled in great Britain businessman Boris Berezovsky, and then clashed with him. About it told the official representative of the Investigative Committee of Russia (TFR) Vladimir Markin in his book “The loudest crimes of the XXI century in Russia”, which on Thursday was presented in Moscow.

“Every time Anna flew to London to her sister, she visited the office of Berezovsky,” — said Markin (quoted by “Interfax”).

“The investigator talked with many people from the entourage of the oligarch, and most of them pointed out that Boris Abramovich was extremely dissatisfied with the actions of Politkovskaya. He believed that the subject of Chechnya she became involved with his blessing”, — said the representative of the RCDS. According to him, in may 2006 — that is, a few months before the murders — between a journalist about a businessman was a conflict.

“Politkovskaya spoke out about this, saying that Berezovsky became paranoid about Putin and the power, — Markin wrote in his book. That is, Berezovsky began to think of Politkovskaya as an enemy, and she was approached for the role of “sacred victim”. Also, like the dead in 2004 [chief editor of the Russian Forbes magazine] Paul Klebnikov, slain as the year before, in 2003, Duma Deputy Sergei Yushenkov, one of the leaders of the movement “Liberal Russia”.

And on March 23 203 year it was reported that Berezovsky was found dead in his home under strange circumstances,” — said Markin.
