1A – A Russian In Exile Continues Opposing President Putin – Oct 11, 2017

While President Putin was celebrating his 65th birthday, Russian investigators raided the homes of at least five people working for Mikhail Khodorkovsky, an exiled oligarch who ran the country’s Yukos oil empire before being jailed on charges most observers believe were politically motivated. Now freed and living in exile — Khodorkovsky discusses Russia’s relationship with the U.S. 

…what Khodorkovsky bought was criticism-of-power, a position of prominent dissidence normally afforded to writers and artists, and which Khodorkovsky achieved semi-accidentally through imprisonment, which he met with stoicism. What a strange story – and it’s not over yet.
