KIEV, April 18 (RIA Novosti) - Boris Berezovsky intends to pass into President Victor Yuschenko's own hands ten audio recordings from the office of Leonid Kuchma, Ukraine's previous President, parliamentarian Grigori Omelchenko said to Novosti/Ukraine news agency. He leads a Supreme Rada (parliament) commission to investigate the Gongadze murder and other sensational crimes.

Mr. Omelchenko came back from London today. He met the runaway Russian tycoon and political activist there, he says. Berezovsky is anxious to make an official statement for the Ukrainian Prosecutor General. Berezovsky makes it a point-he does not want any room left for conjectures and suspicions that he is out for blackmail, added the parliamentarian.

"Berezovsky wants his evidence to do as much as possible for the truth to out on the Gongadze murder, and to bring to account the culprits of that and other grave crimes perpetrated in Ukraine. Kuchma and his henchmen are among those culprits," said Mr. Omelchenko.

Berezovsky had met Nikolai Melnichenko, Leonid Kuchma's bodyguard during his presidency. The controversial tycoon confirmed the fact as was talking to the parliamentarian.

Georgi Gongadze, prominent muckraking journalist, was delving into corruption on the Ukrainian top. He mysteriously vanished, September 2000. A mutilated body, head severed off, was found in a forest near Kiev, November. It was the missing journalist's, many forensic expert studies assuredly established.
