#1 Sounds a lot like a put-up job to smear Berezovsky by Putin's hard men. I wouldn't attach much credibility to this story. Putin's been finding all kinds of reasons to close down media outlets that dissent from his Communist-revivalist message.

#2 Gee, the Russian Billionaire (from what source, eh?) and the KGB stoge/President had a "falling out"?

Wonder what over?

#3 I wouldn't trust Vlad enough to accept a drink of water from him if I were dying of thirst, but the last thing Russia needs right now is a coup attempt. That would give them sufficient reason to accelerate their move toward totalitarianism, instead of following the slow creep they're currently employing. Vlad's not the center - he's just the sock puppet saying the words. I'd be much more interested in whacking some of the Russian Mafia and former apparatchniks that are calling the shots.
