MOSCOW, April 2 (Itar-Tass) – Chief of Kremlin staff Sergei Ivanov said the letter to President Vladimir Putin from business tycoon Boris Berezovsky who died in London, has been delivered to Russia, but that it will not be published.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"We do not publish private letters," he underlined.
Earlier, Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov said "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 the Motherland.
When asked if Kremlin had replied to Berezovsky then, Peskov said he knew nothing about it.
