- On Thursday, March 15, a meeting was held in a private
suite at the Hay-Adams hotel in Washington.
- This meeting was attended by CIA and CIA-based Mossad
personnel, a Russian/Israeli representative of Boris A. Berezovsky, an
Israeli citizen formerly a Russian citizen, representatives of Mikhail
Brudno and Vladimir Duboy, also Israeli citizens and once major holders
in Yukos, the Russian oil giant. Also present was a personal representative
of Vice President Cheney.
- The meeting was under clandestine electronic surveillance
and it quickly emerged that the purpose of this meeting, which commenced
after a luncheon served in the rooms and began at 1425 hours, was to discuss
the means by which Vladimir Putin, President of the Russian Republic, was
to be removed from office, either through extensive civil disruption or
- The former Russian/Israeli oil and business oligarchs
had been effectively removed from power by Putin, following the departure
of Russian President, Boris Yeltsin. Yeltsin had been effectively supported
by the CIA and when in office, denationalized the very important Russian
oil and gas fields, permitting the so-called Oligarchy (of which Berezovsky,
Brudno, Duboy and others, were part and parcel.)
- Their known aim was to gain complete control over these
natural resources with the aid of their co-rerligionists in the World Bank
(now run by another co-religionist, Paul Wolfowitz) the IMF and the Israeli-controlled
Bank of New York. The method was to improve the fields' production capacity
with loans from American and British oil companies and then sell controlling
interests to both entities.
- These plans were frustrated by Putin, and the immensely
wealthy oligarchs stripped of their holdings and run out of the country.
Most of them fled to Israel with as much money as they could abscond with
and where they are now living, completely safe from any criminal prosecution,
while Berezovsky fled to England where he is currently resident.
- Berezovsky, born on 23 January, 1946, he and his associates
gained the support of Yeltsin and he personally took over control of the
state controlled AutoVAZ car business, Aeroflot, the Russian airline and
several very rich natural resources, later reorganized into Sibneft. These
acquisitions were accomplished by bribery, extortion and outright theft
and were all protected by the Yeltsin people. He also was able to seize
control of important segments of the Russian media which he used to support
the 1996 Yeltsin presidential campaign. This media conglomerate also included
the TV6 and Ort television channels and the large-circulation newspapers,
Novye Izbestiya, Nezavisimaya Gazeta and Kommersant.
- Acting on information from the Israeli Mossad, Berezovsky
established contact with Neil Bush, the very corrupt younger brother of
the President and became a very heavy investor, since 2003, in Bush's
computer company, Ignite! Learning. The two have met, in Europe and the
Baltic areas, a number of times subsequently.
- Berezovsky then became heavily involved in the political
situation in the Ukraine in 2005. Working in cooperation with elements
of the CIA who were under orders from the Vice President Cheney to "destabilize
the pro-Russian government of the Ukraine " and seek to bring it under
the aegis of NATO with especial emphasis on gaining the oil rights in the
Donets Basin and, most importantly, to secure the oil and gas pipeline
systems running from Russia to eastern Europe. Berezovsky financially
supported Viktor Yushchenko and transferred "significant amounts
of cash" from his London bank accounts to the Yushchenko campaign.
Such foreign interference is illegal under current Ukrainian laws.
- Although Yushchenko was elected, political activity sponsored
by Russia made it impossible for the U.S. interests to either secure control
over Ukrainian pipelines or gain access to the natural resources of the
- Following this very expensive debacle, Yuschenko then
turned his attention to projects designed to either physically eliminate
Putin or drive him from office. He stated in a public interview in January
of 2006 that he was fully intent in overthrowing Putin, a goal heartily
supported by Vice President Cheney who personally hates Putin and is under
pressure from his friends in the oil industry to remove a man who not only
snatched control over the rich Russian natural resources from them but
has actively blocked their continuing efforts to somehow get their hands
on Russian oil and gas.
- Well aware of Berezovsky's activities (the Russian intelligence
services have long ago penetrated Israeli intelligence organs, a number
of Berezovsky's minions have either vanished without a trace or, like his
co-religionist, ex-Russian FBB intelligence officer and alleged "reporter,"
A. Litvinenko, was poisoned by a dose of radioactive material as were two
other Russian "reporters" and in Washington, an anti-Putin former
CIA official was shot in front of his house and the entire episode covered
up by the American press.
- Although these deaths should have warned not only Berezovsky
and his allies, they apparently learned nothing and are now working to
overthrow Putin and restore the oil and gas interests to status quo pre-Putin.
- As early as August, 2003, tentative plans were being
developed between the CIA, the Mossad and dissident groups inside Russia,
plans that later were formalized in Washington with the blessing of Cheney.
During the course of the 7th International Workshop held in Helsinki, Finland,
at the Sonera Conference Center in that city, meetings were held between
a CIA official using the name of Roger Simkins, his Israeli opposite number,
Rahm Gittlesohn, a Mossad agent attached to the Israeli embassy and Moshe
Sitkovetsky, an Israeli-based agent of Berezovsky. These "initial
exploratory talks" lasted off and on for two days and were later continued
on six separate occasions, five of these in London and the last one in
- An organization was created, called 'Another Russia'
and contact was made with Eduard Limonov who heads the National Bolshevik
Party. Berezovsky has no problem using this man but the Vice President,
who is strongly anti-Communist, has objected to the inclusion of Limonov.
Berezovsky hates Putin for destroying his empire and has on several occasions
labeled the pro-German Putin as a "nazi.' He also has advocated the
killing of Putin's daughters "as a warning" to the Russian president
but to date, this project has received little attention.
- The current plan is to have 'Another Russia' begin a
series of disruptive public protests, utilizing students; former Communists;
and some members of Russia's rapidly shrinking Jewish community. There
have been active discussions about what kind of articles will appear in
the American media (anti-Putin) and, of course, non-documented promises
of large cash rewards to the leaders of the opposition in the event of
their so disrupting Putin that he will resign. In the event that he retaliates,
it is hoped that he does so in front of cameras and at the same time, a
plan is being formulated to shoot him in the Crimea while on vacation and
blame it on Ukrainians.
- It is to be stressed that both the United States and
Israeli governments are fully in accord with the thrust of these plan.
If, on the other hand, the British government were to become aware, at
least officially, that these plots were being conducted from British soil,
the consequences for Berezovsky could be very serious and it was put forward
that as friendly an ally as PM Blair has proven to be to U.S. interests,
it would not be productive to attempt to enlist British cooperation.
