Berezovsky: No Ties With FNK

Boris Berezovsky, the business magnate who holds a senior Kremlin security post, denied Tuesday that he had any links to the mystery buyer of a majority stake in Russia's seventh biggest oil producer, Sibneft.

"I have no ties to FNK," Berezovsky said when asked if Finansovaya Neftyanaya Korporatsiya, which acquired 51 percent of Sibneft at an auction Monday, was linked to Neftyanaya Finansovaya Kompaniya, which organized the tender and is part of Berezovsky's business empire.

Berezovsky said he had suspended involvement in business. on being named deputy secretary of the Security Council last year.
