5 SEPTEMBER 2000 RUSSIA BEREZOVSKII SAYS KREMLIN THREATENS HIM OVER ORT SHARES In an open letter to President Vladimir Putin published by Interfax on 4 September, Boris Berezovskii said that "last week a high-ranking Kremlin official gave me an ultimatum: either I hand over my block of [Russian Public Television] shares to the state within two weeks or I go the same way as [media tycoon] Vladimir Gusinskii--presumably meaning the Butyrka prison." Berezovskii said that "in presenting me with an ultimatum, you have actually put to society a very important question--whether or not non-state mass media have the right to exist in Russia." And he added that "if I comply with this ultimatum, then televised information in Russia will end and be replaced by television propaganda run by your advisers." Consequently, Berezovskii said, he has decided to transfer the 49 percent of ORT shares he owns to journalists and other representatives of the creative intelligentsia. PG
