Mikhail Khodorovsk,   was the richest oligarch -with a fortune of $15 billion. He criticized Putin,  began to speak out for democracy, and was arrested for tax evasion and given a long prison sentence. He lost his billions, but hid a few hundred million in Ireland. Pardoned, recently,  he  lives in London and supports civil society efforts to build a democratic future for Russia.The following statement was posted on Khodorovsky’s website.

We call upon the free world to exercise its vast power and clear moral authority to save innocent lives."
