    Answers of the G8 | 23 Jul 2008

    Leonid NevzlinAt the day when the «Yukos» ex-head Michail Khodorkovsky was 45 years old his former business partner Leonid Nevzlin addressed with a letter to the leaders of G8. As the former vice-president of the oil company informed in his blog on July, 23, he got the first two answers «which clearly point to the fact that the „Yukos case“ gained notoriety of a symbol».

    Leonid Nevzlin’s appeal to the leaders of G-8 | 26 Jun 2008

    Leonid Nevzlin.  NEWSru.co.ilThe eyes of the world are now focused on the G-8 meeting. In this regard, I ask you to bring up with Russian Federation President Dmitry Medvedev the issue of amnesty for political prisoners, who are held in Russian jails on fabricated charges.

    Criminal cases against Mikhail Khodorkovsky and his Yukos colleagues are clearly political, initiated on orders from above. In plain view of the world community, the Kremlin is perpetrating monstrous, unprecedented lawlessness, victimizing dozens of innocent people.

    Five years of reprisal, resistance and hope | 19 Jun 2008

    Five years ago, on the 19-th of June, 2003, there was launched the «Yukos case». At that day Alexey Pichugin, taken the position of the head of the Economic Security Department as the part of the Security Service of the company, was arrested. Then, nobody could assume that the list of the shareholders and the «Yukos» employees who incurred a cruel pressure and persecution, would number tens of surnames, and the company itself would cease to exist.

    Alexey Pichugin was the first one who faced the attack. Having neither imperious ambitions, nor relations to flow of funds, he suffered the cruelest punishment stipulated by Russian modern Criminal Code  in the total absence any direct proofs of his fault from the prosecution.

    Alexey Pichugin stood this blow. Not having derogated in false perjury which the investigators had demanded from him during all five years, not having slandered neither himself nor the «Yukos» top-management, he found himself in a «Black dolphin», a colony for condemned to long-life imprisonment.

    But it is very far to the end in Alexey Pichugins case, whatever they say from the rostrums. His appeal from the sentence is waiting its processing in the European Court of Human Rights. Lots of people try to free Alexey Pichugin by all the mean which are provided by law. His case is at the centre of public attention.

    Today, on the fifth anniversary of the arrest the portal HRO.org publishes the points of view of many people about Alexey Pichugin.

    To the portal HRO.org s questions there replied the human rights activists Elena Bonner, Svetlana Gannushkina, Lyudmila Alekseeva, a poetess and an anchorwoman Natella Boltyanskaya, a politician Alexey Melnikov and a former «Yukos» vice-president Leonid Nevzlin.

    "We are asking you to make all you can for to free the people" | 23 May 2008

    Russian human rights activists, politicians and foreign public figures on 22-nd of May addressed a letter in defense of Russian political prisoners to the president of Russia Dmitry Medvedev. Among those, whom the authors of the appeal call political prisoners and ask to pardon is Alexey Pichugin.

    Nevzlin: ’Yukos prisoners are hostages of Putin’ | 11 Feb 2008

    Leonid Nevzlin  NEWSru.co.ilLeonid Nevzlin, the 49-year-old former Yukos executive and Russian senator, has stepped up his campaign to help free former colleagues from Yukos who languish in Russian prisons after their conviction on various financial crimes.

    Radio LibertyOn the Radio Liberty in Irina Laguninas program «Time and world»  Kseniya Kostromina, the former «Yukos» employee Alexey Pichugins lawyer, the lifelong sentence of whom took effect on the 31-st of January, and the journalist Vera Vasilieva, who wrote the book about the finished trial, answer the questions of the Radio Libertys employee Vladimir Vedrashko.

    "Thank you for courage" | 4 Feb 2008

    The editorial staff of the site has some of the letters of support coming to Alexey Pichugin

    Dear Alexey, dont let it get you down, please, hold on! As though the «Yukos case» was created specially for showing to all the world an extremely bright exertion of human nature. Of highest nobleness on the one hand and of deepest meanness  on the other one. I believe neither in God nor in devil, but I believe in justice. You  held out. And let them have anxiety dreams about Strasbourg. Yulia, Ryazan

    Human right activists statement on the Yukos case | 24 Oct 2007

    YuKOSOn 24 October 2007, on the eve of the 4-th anniversary of Mikhail Khodorkovskys arrest, Russian human rights activists made a statement and launched a campaign for collection of signatures to it.

    The Yukos affair: four years of blatantly political repressions

    Four years ago, on the 25-th of October 2003, Mikhail Khodorkovsky was detained by a special forces detachment in Novosibirsk. The arrest of the man who headed one of the largest and, at the same time, most transparent of Russias oil companies was immediately given the courts approval.
    Thus began the Yukos case, the first show trial of the post-Stalin era, and an affair which has radically changed the political and economic landscape of our country. Khodorkovsky was not the first victim on this sad list: he was preceded by Alexey Pichugin and Platon Lebedev. After his arrest many of the legal staff and managers of Yukos were sentenced to years of imprisonment. We recall that mother of two Svetlana Bakhmina was given a six-year sentence. Then followed 14-15 year sentences. Alexey Pichugin was sentenced to life imprisonment…

    Leonid NevzlinA famous businessman, a member of board of trustees of the Jewish agency „Sohnut“ Leonid Nevzlin made a statement concerning the sentence to the former head of the „YUKOS“ Security department Alexey Pichugin who is doomed today by the Moscow City Court to life imprisonment:

    Leonid Nevzlin about witnesses for the prosecution with regard to Alexey Pichugins case | 30 May 2007

    Leonid NevzlinGambling on violence and corruption, the government deprives its citizens of hope for defence and belief in justice. Propaganda of „stability“ and „order“ in the country of lawlessness hardly substitutes for their real presence.
