The Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky has told the Guardian he is plotting the violent overthrow of President Putin from his base in Britain after forging close contacts with members of Russia's ruling elite.
In comments which appear calculated to enrage the Kremlin, and which will further inflame relations between London and Moscow, the multimillionaire claimed he was already bankrolling people close to the president who are conspiring to mount a palace coup.
WTF is he thinking? Is he trying to commit suicide by getting himself sent back to Russia?
As for trying to overthrow Putin, I don't think so. But it is possible, there has to be a number of officials around him that are aware that Putin is slowly turning the country into a dictatorship.
