France24 – Russian court convicts oil tycoon who opposed Putin

France24 – Russian court convicts oil tycoon who opposed Putin.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky remains unbowed near the end of his first sentence to hard labor in Siberia, calling Putin “pitiful but dangerous”.

So here come’s another sentencing for “embezzlement” for the Russian oil tycoon who has opposed the current regime.

This time the Khodorkovsky is getting  sympathy from some of his countrymen, (who have gotten over the class-envy of his former wealth), as they acknowledge the penalties for opposing the government.

This new action from Russia’s “judicial” system  brings the expected weak, and tepid response from Obama.
