Post oligarch living. What happened to the business from the 90s?

At the forum in Sochi President of Russia Vladimir Putin told an anecdote about the wife of bankrupt tycoon. The anecdote he remembered looking at sitting in the hall banker P. Aven, but said that he’s “all good”. What happened to the other members of the “seven bankers” from the 90s?

In 1996, the Financial Times published an interview with Boris Berezovsky, in which he mentioned the term “seven bankers” and transferred to the oligarchs who took control of a large part of the economy, influenced the political decision-making. Two decades later not everyone was able to stay afloat.

Died in poverty

Berezovsky himself after a failed political intrigue during the elections of 1999-2000 was declared wanted. The oligarch was accused of fraud, money laundering, the attempt to seize power. Since September 2003, Berezovsky lived in great Britain as a “political refugee”. In 2009 a court in Russia found him guilty of embezzling 140 million rubles from “LogoVAZ” and “AVTOVAZ” and sentenced to 13 years imprisonment.

In 2008, the state of Berezovsky was estimated at us $ 1.3 billion. But after a series of courts, which he lost to his former partners, capital began to melt: the oligarch had to fire assistants, almost all of the security, to sell a few houses. In 2011 his ex-wife sued compensation of 220 million pounds.

Once the richest person in Russia died on March 23, 2013 in London almost a pauper — his debts were estimated at 309 million pounds.

Circumstances of death are not reliably established, priority version is suicide. Recently, the Internet spread a photo of the grave of Berezovsky — a modest and well-groomed.
