IN 2011, European Court of Human Rights ruled that while some of his right were violated, fundamentally Khodorkovsky had not been condemned unfairly. In other words, if he was not sentenced for political reasons, he was sentenced for a crime and that, last time I checked, makes Khodorkovsky a convicted criminal.
Why is it then that from the White House, to Baroness Ashton, to nearly all the European and US elites - everybody is celebrating? Why this sympathy for a justly convicted criminal?
What the hell is wrong with you guys?!
Do you realize that this attitude makes you look like you are in cahoots with a criminal oligarch?
