The Financial Times says Valery Belokon’s Baltic International Bank was the largest creditor of convicted Aeroflot embezzler Boris Berezovsky.
Latvians may recall Berezovsky’s visit to Latvia in 2005 when he was greeted not only by Belokon but also by Vienotiba Party founder Einars Repse. Latvians also may recall that Belokon was caught giving money to Repse by purchasing an overpriced countryside property from him.
Berezovsky and his protégé Roman Abramovich, according to themselves, installed Vladimir Putin as President of Russia starting in 2000.
Repse was one of the chief engineers of the fraudulent bailout of Parex Bank in 2009.
