Katerina Sabirova, 23, said she did not believe he had killed himself and said that he sounded “better than usual” when she spoke to him. She said they were due to go to the Dead Sea three days later.
A post-mortem conducted last month found that Mr Berezovsky’s death was “consistent with hanging” and that there were no signs of violence or “third party” involvement.
In an interview with New Times, a weekly Russian newspaper, she said: “He was definitely planning to come to Israel on Monday [March 25]. I know that for sure.”
“[Berezovsky] used to say: ‘Imagine if I’m not around, all the problems will go away,’ but this wasn’t a guide to action, I could not and cannot imagine that he could do this. It’s very hard to believe this,” Sabirova said.
