MOSCOW, April 3 (Itar-Tass) - The Kremlin will not disclose the name of the person who delivered the late tycoon Boris Berezovsky’s letter to President Vladimir Putin, presidential spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said.
“We will not disclose this information,” he told Itar-Tass on Wednesday, April 3.
Earlier in the day, the DOZHD (Rain) television channel quoted sources “familiar with the manuscript transfer procedure” as saying that Berezovsky’s letter had been delivered personally by millionaire Roman Abramovich.
“There were several penitential letters,” the channel quoted its source in the government as saying.
Presidential chief of staff Sergei Ivanov said on Tuesday, April 2, that Berezovsky’s letter to Putin had been brought to Russia but would not be published.
“I haven't seen it /the letter/; haven't read it; but I'm 100 percent certain it exists and that it was delivered to Russia by a Russian citizen several months ago,” Ivanov told reporters.
“We do not publish private letters,” he underlined.
Peskov said earlier that “some time ago, Berezovsky passed a letter to Putin, written personally, in which he acknowledged that he had made many errors and asked Putin’s forgiveness for these errors.” He also asked Putin to let him return to Russia.
When asked if the Kremlin had replied to Berezovsky then, Peskov said he knew nothing about that.
