I don't know much about Martin Armstrong, but Tom put a link out to his site which contained the film, The Magnitsky Act : Behind the Scenes, so I had a poke around the site and Martin Armstrong said in one of his posts that Putin probably murdered Yeltsin's blackmailer, Safara, for exchange for the presidency. So I looked into it further and found another post by Armstrong going more into it.I don't know if this is just hearsay and gossip, but it does give a glimpse of what can happens at the highest levels. Could Yeltsin have been a crook like all the other Russian oligarchs grabbing state industries during the collapse of the Soviet Union? Was Yeltsin not a reformer at all, but was just in on the game embezzling billions? And was Putin an assassin who solved the problem for Yeltsin?

But we do know that there is a lot of crime at the top end of society, where bankers rub shoulders with villains. Think of the blood diamonds? It's chilling stuff. KV
Perhaps the number one question I always get about the ordeal I went through and the sheer chaos that surrounded everything, was just who really was behind the plot to blackmail the former head of Russia to stop him from running for reelection in 2000 and hand-pick ? It is true I even had a meeting with the US Attorney Office on the subject when they realized that Republic National Bank and had set up even Bank of New York as the center piece in the plot. As the players that surrounded me have mysteriously died, hanged themselves, been imprisoned, released, just saying they were denied a fair trial without explanation as with the nurse that supposedly killed Safra, this wild plot is still the classic who-done-it that may not be solved until someone gets the secret files tucked away on this one.
Bereszovsky, who fled to Britain obtaining political asylum, suddenly . Then there is the lawyer/accountant , who represented Safra’s mysteriously awaiting trial and then is given a posthumous trial and found guilty. While he was portrayed in the West as a whistle-blower, don’t forget so was Safra against Bank of New York. This then led Congress to strangely pass the to A bill to impose sanctions on persons responsible for the detention, abuse, or death of Sergei Magnitsky, for the conspiracy to defraud the Russian Federation of taxes on corporate profits through fraudulent transactions and lawsuits against Hermitage. This is curiously strange for a foreign act to prompt Congress to pass a law in the USA. We cannot leave out Edmond Safra’s own mysterious murder in Monaco () that took the fire company hours to reach being just 10 minutes away while his more than 20 bodyguards were all given the night off and reported bullets in his body with his nurse saying Russians dressed as ninjas showed up.
