Saluting Svetlana Bakhmina

Khodorkovsky's lawyer, Svetlana Bakhmina, who was imprisoned on false charges, was finally released.

Even though she signed some sort of vague and meaningless "confession" to enable the Russian system to save face, as far as can be made out she did not give in to either the blandishments or the torture of Putin's henchmen.

She is a modern Russian heroine.

I hope that all my readers will join me in saluting her. People like her give us hope that all is not yet lost for that great country and that the nexus of people which has systematically looted Russia, particularly after 1985, will eventually be brought to book. Sphere: Related Content
