Jonas Bernstein , on 9 July 2008, in Eurasia Daily Monitor, refers to Boris Berezovsky and Mr Atlangeriev and Mr. Nikhaev (MEDVEDEV’S FOREIGN POLICY ADVISER DENOUNCES BBC REPORT ON LITVINENKO MURDER.)

From Bernstein we learn the following:

On 7 June 2008, BBC Newsnight referred to a 'Mr A.' who allegedly traveled from Russia to kill Boris Berezovsky.

Reportedly, 'Mr A.' was caught and deported from Britain.

Kommersant reported in 2008 that the man deported from Britain was the alleged Chechen crime boss Movladi Atlangeriev.

Atlangeriev and alleged crime boss, Khozh-Akhmed Nukhaev, reportedly organized Moscow’s Chechen criminal gangs in the early 1990s.

Russian authorities have accused Nukhaev of ordering the 2004 murder of Paul Klebnikov, editor of Russian Forbes magazine.

In Klebnikov in 2000, Nukhaev said that the gang he and Atlangeriev ran had protected Logovaz, Russia’s leading car dealer, which Berezovsky controlled in the 1990s.

In 2002, Berezovsky was accused of involvement in the kidnapping and assassination of Major General Gennady Shpigun, the Interior Ministry’s envoy to Chechnya, in late 1998.

It was also claimed that Berezovsky had “close relations, including in business, with the well-known Chechen criminal organization in Moscow (led by) Khozhakmed Nukhaev and Movladi Atlangeriev” (The Jamestown Monitor, March 6, 2002) . The evidence came from a videotape, of an unidentified witness, presented by the Prosecutor General’s Office.

In April 2008, senior Investigative Committee official Dmitry Dovgy accused Nukhaev and Berezovsky of ordering the 2006 murder of Novaya Gazeta correspondent Anna Politkovskaya (Izvestia, April 3).
