Russian Billionaire Accuses Kremlin Of Sabotaging Political Career

Posted by Info on 15/09/2011

Russian oligarch Mikhail Prokhorov, leader of the Pravoe Delo (Right Cause) party has accused the Kremlin of trying to sabotage his fledgling political career ahead of key polls.
His allies and spokespeople complained people close to the Kremlin had conspired against the party leader to boot him out.
“There are attempts by employees of the presidential administration to put the Right Cause party under control. Who is behind this, I will say tomorrow.

In May, Mr Prokhorov, the owner of the NBA’s New Jersey Nets basketball team, announced his readiness to lead a small pro-reform party in parliamentary polls.
In June, he easily won the party’s leadership at a congress, setting the goal of challenging the dominance of Vladimir Putin’s ruling United Russia faction.
