Evil genius or just a clever businessman with ties, but the shadow of Berezovsky looming over all large-scale events of the 90s. Or he would like us all to think about it this way?

In the nineties, Berezovsky was omnipresent and omnipotent. He cranked out multi-million dollar deal under the roof of Cherokee, tried to seize the Aeroflot acquired Sibneft for a song and supervised the aluminum giant "Rusal". Money flowed into the pockets of Doctor of Mathematical Sciences. Together with the same partner Badri Patarkatsishvili, they cranked transactions that were only possible in those dashing nineties. Then, in the wake of these scams will be 11 criminal cases, two of them convicted in absentia of Berezovsky.

Berezovsky became the first and the last Russian oligarch who converted their capital into political clout. Deputy Secretary of the Security Council, then Executive Secretary of the CIS - it was called the main "reshalschikom" of the Kremlin, which was well received in all rooms. But even without the position of Boris Abramovich had a special influence on Yeltsin. Besides Berezovsky owned a weapon of mass destruction - in his media empire were TV channels ORT and TV6, Kommersant and Nezavisimaya Gazeta. He himself willingly gave interviews about the fate of the motherland and the political situation in the country.

About how Berezovsky actually organized trafficking in the Caucasus - openly spoke those passed the first Chechen. On camera, Boris Abramovich posed as the savior of Russian soldiers from captivity. At the same time openly supported the Chechen separatists and pay money personally to Shamil Basayev. Berezovsky mad career ended with insane 90-mi and the Yeltsin era, the new conditions it was not possible to conduct their business. Berezovsky was one of the first who fled to London and showed the way, as it turned out many traders from the 90's. But there he was trying to influence the situation in Russia, declared a crusade against Vladimir Putin personally, using the slightest reason to accuse the Russian authorities of all sins. The most high profile story was the death of the fugitive oligarch who worked for the former secret service agent Alexander Litvinenko.
