    Mikhail Khodorkovsky: «An innnocent man, Alexey Pichugin, is still behind bars» | 26 Mar 2016

    Mikhail KhodorkovskyMikhail Khodorkovsky: «I have no need whatsoever of these $ 50 billion which Russian authorities are sentenced to pay back for their robbery, cause I do not follow the trial. But, there’s an utterly innocent man, Alexey Pichugin, who is still held in prison. I will go on with the pressure I exercise upon Putin and his cronies, until he is released. I mean, my partners and I».

    On his Facebook page Khodorkovsky answered the accusations of unlawful purchase of YUKOS held by the Investigation Commitee against him.

    I bought YUKOS in 1996, and afterwards the company had been taken from me by force in favour of the Baikalfinansgroup, a company «well-known to Putin» registered, as far as I remember, in a bar called London in Tver in 2004. I consider both acts unjust, but I bought the company in total accordance with the laws in force back then; anyway, the company had been brutally taken from me in favour of Putin’s friends. To do so, they killed [Vasily] Aleksanian in jail and broke dozens of others peoples’ lives. During my 7-years tenure as a CEO, the company extracted and refined twice the previuous volume of oil while the reserves more than doubled thanks to the exploration and new technologies. In 1995 the company worked at loss the barrel’s value being 17-20 dollars, while at the beginning of 1999 its activity was profitable even with the barrrel price of 12-14. As a consequence, the capitalization increased to $ 30 billion, and this without counting another $ 15 billion in dividends.

    The overall reward I received for those 7 years totalled 3% of the profits’ increase. This reward I deem just and fair. : I have no need whatsoever of these $ 50 billion which Russian authorities are sentenced to pay back for their robbery, cause I do not follow the trial. But, there’s an utterly innocent man, Alexey Pichugin, who is still held in prison. I will go on with the pressure I exercise upon Putin and his cronies, until he is released. I mean, my partners and I.
