The following is information regarding Russia's political prisoners in general. Khodorkovsky has been "freed" - more like exiled to me - because he is more of a problem for Putin in jail than out. This is not a gesture of compassion; Putin hasn’t a drop of compassion in him.

The following are books about and by Khodorkovsky in different languages:

One Yukos employee, Alexei Pichugin, still remains in jail; accused of murder, he refused to go against his boss Khodorkovsky to cooperate with the pro-Putin clan. He has been sentenced to life imprisonment and won't give in to Putin. A biographical essay (Russian) is available and there are also photos . Journalist Valeriy Shiryaev has written a book on Pichugin’s case “Trial of Vengeance"(English). Incidentally, during his interrogation Pichugin was administered truth-serum and he still had nothing to say.

Categories-applications-internet-iconThe warrant for the arrest of Nevzlin - co-owner of Yukos - has been cancelled by Interpol on the grounds it was politically motivated, most likely by Putin & Co.
