Gorbachev Foundation denies having archive and office in London
Gorbachev Foundation spokesperson Vladimir Polyakov claimed the Foundation has never had an office in London.
He also said the Foundation has never worked with the company in whose facilities squatters allegedly had found its archive, as reported by The Guardian.
“Anyway, I personally do not now about anything like that despite having worked at the Foundation since the very beginning,” Polyakov told the RIA Novosty News Agency when commenting on yesterday’s news.
May we remind you that yesterday British newspaper The Guardian reported on squatters discovering a cache of documents relating to the Foundation founded by the first USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1991. The squatters occupied a mansion opposite Buckingham Palace. That is where they discovered the cache.
Activists from the Autonomous Nation of Anarchist Libertarians, or Anal, occupy high-value and high-profile buildings to spotlight problems homeless people face.
The seven-storey mansion, 19 Buckingham Gate, worth £14 million is owned by Bahraini banker Abdulrahman Aljasmi. The squatters were reported to have found documents relating to the Foundation, including confidential letter for transnational corporations signed by the former USSR President.
