A Birthday Message For Mikhail Khodorkovsky
Supporters of jailed billionaire Mikhail Khodorkovsky are celebrating his 50th birthday on June 26 with a countrywide birthday-message campaign. The former oil tycoon has been in prison since 2003, and his sentence runs until 2017. Khodorkovsky's press center has also been releasing video clips by friends and ordinary well-wishers for the occasion. Journalist Natalya Gevorkyan, who co-authored a book with Khodorkovsky, was among those filmed for the campaign.
