Boris Berezovsky:"Boris Nemtsov is seeking to foil relations between Viktor Yushchenko and Yulia Timoshenko"
Well-known Russian politician Boris Nemtsov, the Ukainian president's adviser outside the staff, is seeking to foil relations between Viktor Yushchenko and Yulia Timoshenko, according to the run-away Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky. In A Segonya newspaper interview, the Novosti-Ukraina agency quotes Berezovsky as calling Nemtsov "the fifth column". Indeed, Nemtsov who would harshly criticize Timoshenko as prime minister was quoted at the end of May as saying that Timoshenko would bring Ukraine to a break-down." The Ukrainian parliament (Supreme Rada) qualified Nemtsov's words against the prime minister as interference in Ukraine's internal affairs and declared on June 3 for his resignation. But on the same day, Yushchenko's press-secretary Irina Gerashchenko said the president did not plan to remove Nemtsov from the consultant post. Berezovsky is quoted by the Segodnya newspaper as expressing his desire to invest in the Ukrainian economy billions of US dollars he received from the sale of his property in Russia. Berezovsky is known for numerous statements about his intention to move to Ukraine for permanent residence in the near future and to open there a foundation to support civil rights. At a Riga press-conference on February 25, 2005 he explained his idea of moving to Ukraine by the change of the political regime in the republic. It was in the autumn of 2003 that the Russian businessman Berezovsky who is being prosecuted in Russia on charges of fraud in aggravating circumstances got political asylum in Britian.
