Some critics still accuse Prokhorov of coordinating his activities with Putin.
“I am against bloody revolutions, I am much more in favor of evolutions,” Prokhorov told reporters.
In 2008, Prokhorov sold his shares in Norilsk to another Russian billionaire, Oleg Deripaska.
“There is a battle going on inside the Kremlin,” between hardliners and liberals, Prokhorov told the Financial Times last week.
But Prokhorov and Nemtsov had privately formed an alliance, Nemtsov said Monday.
And Prokhorov has been careful not to say anything that would offend Putin personally.
Prokhorov is also in favor of letting media, Parliament, and the economy become independent of the state.
Prokhorov is in somebody's house and can't go on duty just now.
