Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky found dead., 23 March 2013.
The exiled Russian tycoon Boris Berezovsky has been found dead at his home in Surrey.

The circumstances of the death of the 67-year-old - a wanted man in Russia, and an opponent of President Vladimir Putin - are not yet known.
I'm not going to lie and say that I'll shed any tears at the death of Boris Berezovsky.

There haa been a string of deaths/murders of prominent Russian exiles in the UK of late; Berezovsky is now the most prominent of them. He may well have killed himself though - he had recently lost a significant part of his (plundered) fortune in a high profile lawsuit.

I will try to post some background and analysis on him soon; but frankly nothing about Russia is simple, and it will take some time to prepare (his death was just announced an hour or so ago).
