Boris Berezovsky: rise and fall of a first generation oligarch

Have a look at the video below. The report was aired on Kremlin controled TV channel Russia Today (a Russian CNN wannabe!!!) and it is clear that the report gives a very pro-Kremlin image of the Berezovsky case.

However, I tend to believe that in many ways, it gives a much more complete view of the situation than the reports we usually see on BAB (Boris Abramovich Berezovsky, his Russian nickname) and it gives a bit of a balance on what first generation oligarchs were really about: they were not much concerned about democracy as they now pretend, but benefitted outrageously from Russian privatization wave.
