Berezovsky's relatives yet to decide on burial site - source
LONDON. April 4 (Interfax) - Relatives of oligarch Boris Berezovsky, who has recently died in London, are organizing his funeral.
Berezovsky's relatives are looking for a burial site, a source in Berezovsky's family circle told Interfax. "The discussion is underway, there are a lot of variants," the source said.
Berezovsky's relatives have not yet reached an agreement because "B. Berezovsky's family is big, everyone has an opinion," the source said.
The family has "almost rejected the variant of the burial in Russia," the source said. "The variant with the Gunnersbury cemetery in London, which was actively reported by Russia mass media outlets, is being considered as well," the source said.
"The exact information will be later, it is safe to say now that the preparations are underway," the source told Interfax.
