Berezovsky Thought He Had Been Poisoned

Boris Berezovsky's daughter says the self-exiled Russian oligarch thought he had been poisoned in the days after he lost a multibillion-dollar legal battle with a business rival.

Elizaveta Berezovskaya told a coroner's inquest  Thursday that her father said "something strange was happening to him" and said "some chemical reaction was inside him." The family later concluded he was suffering from depression.

The body of 67-year-old Berezovsky — a Kremlin insider turned critic of President Vladimir Putin — was found on a bathroom floor of his ex-wife's home in England in March 2013.

A pathologist told the inquest Berezovsky's injuries were consistent with hanging and there was no sign of struggle.

Inquests are held in Britain to determine the facts in all cases of violent or unexplained death.

… 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.
