Moscow May Have
A Jewish Mayor

Moscow (JTA) — Moscow
could soon have its first Jew-
ish mayor.
Konstantin Natanovich
Borovoi, founder of the Rus-
sian Commodities and Raw
Materials Exchange and
reputed to be one of Russia's
wealthiest men, has thrown
his hat into the ring for a
mayoral election set for Feb
28.
"I'm not Ross Perot," Mr.
Borovoi told reporters at a
news conference last week.
"I'm not spending my own
money on this."
But Mr. Borovoi sounded
very much like the Texas
billionaire in disavowing
personal ambition.
"I don't want to be
mayor," he said, "but I hate
the Communists and I want
to create here normal econ-
omic structures, normal po-
litical structures. That is the
goal of my life."
It is just as well that Mr.
Borovoi does not have his
heart set on the mayor's of-
fice because the elections
may not take place next
month after all.
Moscow's city government,
like the Russian federal
government, is plagued by a
bitter struggle between the
executive and legislative
branches. The City Council
voted to hold the election to
test the political strength of
Mayor Yuri Luzhkov.
But the city's public pros-
ecutor ruled against the call
for elections, after an appeal.
by Mr. Luzhkov. The matter
is presently in the local
courts.
If the election takes place,
Mr. Borovoi will face Mr.
Luzhkov and two other
challengers. One of them is
radical-reform economist
Larisa Piyasheva, herself
not Jewish but a strong sup-
porter of reforms that have
affected Jews, such as easing
emigration restrictions. The
other challenger is a city of-
ficial.
Mr. Luzhkov himself was
elected to the post of deputy
mayor in June 1991, when
Gavril Popov became the
first popularly elected mayor
in the city's history. That
was the same election in
which Boris Yeltsin became
Russia's first popularly
elected president.
Mr. Popov resigned in May
1992, protesting the coun-
cil's obstruction of his
reforms. Mr. Luzhkov then
became mayor to fill out Mr.

Popov's term, which expires
in 1996.
But Mr. Luzhkov lacks Mr.
Popov's "clean" reformer
image. He has repeatedly
been the subject of rumors of
bribery and corruption,
charges he has brusquely
denied.
"Luzhkov is a person of the
old generation," Mr. Borovoi
said last week. "He will
never be a good manager be-
cause he will not carry
through on privatization."
Mr. Borovoi, 44, is one of
the country's most well-
known ,businessmen.
Reputedly a multimillionaire,
he has started more than 20
enterprises over the past six
years, including the com-
modities exchange.
His patronymic of
Natanovich, or "son of
Natan," indicates that his
father was Jewish, but be
has not been publicly iden-
tified with Jewish causes.
Privately, however, Borovoi
has supported programs to
aid the Jewish elderly hit by
inflation.
He also showed his Jewish
feelings in a highly publiciz-
ed case here in December
1991, when he provided pro-
tection to the wife of a Jew-
ish academician who was
kidnapped and later
murdered as part of ethnic
violence in the Caucasus re-
gion of Checheniya.
Mr. Borovoi entered the
political stage here last year
when he founded the Party
of Economic Freedom to rep-
resent the interests of
Russia's new en-
trepreneurial class.

UNESCO Head
Postpones Visit

Paris (JTA) — Federico
Mayor Zaragoza, director-
b general of the United
Nations Educational, Scien-
tific and Cultural Organiza-
tion, has unexpectedly
postponed his official visit to
Israel.
UNESCO has had a rocky
relationship with Israel, but
the election of Mayor to the
leadership position was
auguring more comfortable
relations between the U.N.
body and the Jewish state.
It appears that Israel's re-
cent expulsion of more than
400 Palestinians is to blame
for the postponement.
