    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…

    Journalist Valeriy Shiryaev on the first case of Aleksey Pichugin in his book «Trial of vengeance. The first victim of the YUKOS case» | 25 Aug 2006

    Trial of vengeanceSince the time of the Inquisition the collision of individuals with the machine of repressions has on many occasions become a subject of research of masters of art. Life constantly provided them with new material. The willpower and internal faith into the higher justice drove thousands through history, from religious reformers to soviet dissidents.

    n modern Russia, as dozens of years ago, a common person can become a victim of the state millstone machinery of political repressions. Against will individuals have to continue the bitter history of confrontation. This happens nowadays: Aleksey Pichugin, thrown into jail as a result of an unfair trial and publicly slandered, saves the honor of his country.
