Former Russian banker Andrei Borodin has been granted political asylum in Britain. Borodin told the Daily Telegraph that he was targeted by a politically motivated prosecution by Dmitry Medvedev, the former president who now is prime minister.
I do not know the circumstances in this case, but I know that what Borodin told the Telegraph about dictator Putin most certainly is true:
“Nothing important in Russia can be done without the knowledge of the number one in the country. Mr Putin built a system of autocracy, corruption and unprofessionalism in Russia and now he is a hostage to this system. And what happened to me is the result of the functioning of this system, whose father is Putin.”
