Letters from Trepashkin and Galina Starovoitova
This is probably a speculation, but it is now clear for what reason Galina Starovoitova was assassinated (see article about Litvinenko). Mikhail Trepashkin tells the following . "Litvinenko and others bravely came forward to tell the truth about FSB, but nobody supported us. Where are you, democratic forces of Russia? I am sitting in the prison wrongly accussed for 4 years, and no one helps me. " (this is not translation but summary). Galina Starovoitova was a kind of person who would never let them down. She would make a huge international story of it using her personal international connections. Therefore, it was an imperative for FSB to kill her as quickly as possible. It would be important to learn what she did during last three days of her life.
Statement by Borshev
We cite a well-sourced statement by Borshev. It is important to properly describe what he said. He compared her death with murder of Alexander Men to emphasize that people who ordered the murder were not found. This is his opinion, and it is represented in this article as such. The attempts by Vlad to delete this will be resisted. Biophys 20:21, 17 February 2007 (UTC)
- I do not oppose this, but you should indicate directly that this is personal opinion and allegation of a specific person. The court judgement and official investigation prove that this opinion is wrong. Vlad fedorov 09:43, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
Material moved from Litvinenko article
On 17 November 1998, during the period that Vladimir Putin was the head of the FSB, five officers of FSB's Directorate for the Analysis of Criminal Organisations appeared at a press conference in the Russian news agency Interfax. The five officers, including the director of the Seventh Department, Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Gusyk, three senior operative officers — Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Litvinenko, Major Andrey Ponkin, and Colonel V. V. Shebalin, Lieutenant Constantin Latyshonok, and Gherman Scheglov accused the director of the Directorate for the Analysis of Criminal Organisations Major-General Evgenii Khokholkov and his deputy, 1st Rank Captain Alexander Kamishnikov of ordering them in November 1997 to assassinate Boris Berezovsky, a Russian businessman who then held the high government post of Secretary of the Security Council and was close to President Boris Yeltsin; Berezovsky later fled to the UK to avoid criminal charges (and later helped fund Litvinenko's work).. The officers also claimed they were ordered to kill Mikhail Trepashkin and to kidnap a brother of the businessman Umar Dzhabrailov. Mikhail Trepashikin was present as a victim of the planned assassination. Several other FSB officers were also present to support the claims.
The leader of the Democratic Russia party and proponent of lustration, Galina Starovoitova, was murdered just three days later. However, the official investigation of Starovoitova death did not establish a connection with FSB actions , and six killers were judged and sentenced in 2005 and 2006.

- Explanation is very simple, this article is not about Primakov. Even if it was about him it so close to slander, that it is very doubtful it should be in encyclopedia. Novodvorskaya statement on the other hand is outright slander it has no place in any encyclopedia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SoSoSocialist (talk • contribs) 07:42, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
- Wikipedia editors cannot judge statements of notable persons, including those of Novodvorskaya. One can only present and refer to them. The officer in question should be prepared to face more public scrutiny than a layman.--ilgiz (talk) 11:29, 6 June 2009 (UTC)
