Khodorkovsy is interesting
.trying to take down Putin and lead Russia. I hope he succeeds. More at:
‘Khodorkovsy is interesting ’
LOL. Check Khodorkovsky’s ‘Open Russia Foundation’ and who are its trustees. Pay attention to international ‘Open Society Foundation’ to which ORF is interconnected, learn who are founder and trustees. Browder, Magnitski are their tools as well.
Hermitage Capital / Grassley letter bump
Thanks. A Khodorkovsky-Soros-Browder link would be extremely interesting.
