Former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky has promised not to seek power in Russia but said he would fight for the freedom of people he considered political prisoners, challenging Vladimir Putin two days after a presidential pardon freed him from jail. Khodorkovsky told reporters in Berlin that "the struggle for power is not for me," but made clear he would put pressure on Putin and urged world leaders to do the same, saying his release should not be seen as a sign Russian repression is at an end.
