MOSCOW, December 24 – RAPSI. Prosecutor General Yury Chaika has ordered a probe into the alleged links of fallen oligarch Boris Berezovsky to high-profile crimes in past years, Prosecutor General's Office spokesperson Marina Gridneva told journalists on Monday.

The claims were made in the “Berezovsky” documentary, shown on December 23 by the Rossiya TV channel.

The broadcast claims the businessman might be linked to several high-profile crimes, such as an attempted explosion at former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko's headquarters on November 21, 2004.

Former Ukrainian Prosecutor General Gennady Vasilyev said Berezovsky and his deceased business partner Badri Patarkatsishvili were directly involved in the incident.

The film also asserted that Berezovsky was linked to the mysterious disappearance of Russian politician Ivan Rybkin in February 2004.

The film features fragments of telephone conversations between Berezovsky and Ukrainian parliamentarian David Zhvaniya, and the alleged killers who prepared the assassination.

Berezovsky, who is wanted by the authorities on charges of fraud and deception, has been hiding in the UK since 2000. In 2003, a British court refused to extradite the businessman to Russia.
