LONDON - The estate of late Jewish Russian oligarch Boris Berezovsky, who helped broker Vladimir Putin's rise to the Kremlin's top job only to become his sworn enemy, is hopelessly insolvent, a British judge has said.

A fast-talking former mathematician who scaled the heights of the ruthless world of post-Soviet business and politics, Berezovsky clashed with Putin soon after his election in 2000 and fled to Britain where he became his most vociferous enemy.

Once cast as the 'godfather of the Kremlin' by foes and admirers alike, Berezovsky was humiliated in 2012 when he lost a legal battle with former partner Roman Abramovich, over shares in Russia's fourth biggest oil company.

Berezovsky, at one point ranked as a billionaire by Forbes, made his fortune in cars, airlines, metals and oil. He was found dead in 2013 in a locked bathroom at his home in England. He was 67.
