Berezovsky's Yachts 'Arrested'

French police have seized two yachts worth a combined $20 million and other valuables, including paintings, owned by exiled businessman Boris Berezovsky, the Russian Prosecutor General's Office said Thursday, Interfax reported.

Property was seized on request of Russian prosecutors, who accuse Berezovsky of embezzling 60 billion rubles ($2 billion) from AvtoVAZ, a Prosecutor General's Office spokeswoman said.

Berezovsky said Thursday that he owns no yachts in France and is not aware of any paintings that belong to him being arrested in the country.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
