Mikhail Khodorkovsky has experienced first hand the wrath of Vladimir Putin. Here, in conversation with his co-author Martin Sixsmith, Khodorkovsky shares his unique insight into Putin, the Russian regime and the president's abuse of power. Drawing from his new book ‘The Russia Conundrum’, Khodorkovsky reveals previously unknown information about his own life to show how Russia really works and how the West can truly begin to blunt the Kremlin’s imperial ambitions.
A successful oil tycoon and once the wealthiest man in Russia, Khodorkovsky was arrested at gunpoint in 2003, stripped of his assets and jailed on politically motivated charges. After almost 10 years in prison, he wrote a handwritten letter to Vladimir Putin pleading for release to see his terminally ill mother. This release was granted on the condition that Khodorkovsky leave Russia for good. After the death of his mother, Khodorkovsky began to criticise Putin publicly once more, eventually becoming one of the most notable critics of Putin and his regime.
The translator is Elena Cook.
This event was recorded live at London's Union Chapel on 8 September 2022.

In addition, he states in the interview that we need skilled people and not politicians to resolve the conflict. There may very well be something to that. He seeks answers by studying history in relation to his reference to Nazism. I would call that smart, that you study, think and are flexible to change your position according to what the facts indicate.

This man, his straightforwardness and humility, reminds me of Polish intelligentsia of the Soviet times. People who could have had good lives if only they agreed to collaborate with the government, instead they chose life of poverty and persecution. This idealism is real. This idealism of Mr. Khodorkovsky is shared by Kasparov, Kara-Murza and other Russian dissidents. And however controversial this might sound this is also the idealism of Zelensky and of many other Ukrainians today. In our turbulent part of the world, this unshakable integrity is a survival strategy - not physical survival of course because what they do is dangerous. But it's a kind of soul survival. Perhaps this isn't always appreciated or even well understood in the West: these people are prepared to give their lives for truth. In fact, that's what they're doing.

His insights are useful, but he’s not a good guy. It doesn’t give me hope to see how myopic my fellow Westerners are. They can’t differentiate between a guy with a grudge that happens to be useful for us and a selfless activist.

Russia has always been a culture of political disaster. There have been opportunities since the development of capitalism for Russia to develop along with the rest of the world. Whenever there were potential moments of really possible change, the boyars (nobles) and the tsar would diverge; with the tsar always choosing to remain backwards. Some say that Putin looks backward to the Romanovs, especially Alex III, for a way of running the empire.

Since a few years I'm eating books about the Sovjet Union and Russia. And damn, what a complicated situation. Biggest problem imo is that the government and officials no longer allow the harsh but true history, make it better than it was or simply ignore it. As a result, it can never be learned from. Generations grow up with no or wrong knowledge of what their parents and ancestors went through. Which will make you see things like the Z more often in the future and the polarisation more understandable.

I was talking to a Russian acquaintance recently, touching on that "support" thing. Kinda explaining to me, he said (heavily paraphrased): _"You Western Europeans have it good, but you've let the American polarization get to you. Everything must be binary. 1s or 0s. With me or my enemy. So when you hear '30% say they're against the war', you conclude 'then this means 70% support the war'. But in reality, when asked, 50% say either 'f*ck off leave me alone', or they say nothing. And you can probably do the math on the rest."_ He also pointed out that while it is only speculation, when considering the context, when people people are insisting on _not_ answering such a question - in many cases that might be because telling the truth or being a bad liar, could get them in trouble. And considering that context again; there's only really one of those two options that could get them in trouble. Or at least lead them to think that.

The sooner, the better. I think he's got it about right with his thought that it'll take a generation to be free of the present mindset in greater Russia - a Russia that sees the West as an ally rather than an ideological foe. Here's a stretch - a Russia invited to be inside NATO might make China rethink its warlike relations with the Western bloc?

@DEATH TO THE URAINE NAZIS 7 years out of date, and just a bunch of kids paid by Russia to act out Nazi salutes. Ukraine is not by any means run by Nazis, it is run by a centrist, democratically elected government with a Jewish president, descended from victims of the Nazi holocaust. The far-right paramilitary group the Azov Battalion has (or used to have) only 900 members out of the total Ukraine military force of over 215,000 active personnel. Ukraine is a centrist democratic country with a Jewish president. To call them "Nazi" is regurgitating Kremlin propaganda. Less than 2% of Ukraine is politically "far-right" enough to merit the label "Neo-Nazi" - more or less the same as in most countries. They are not powerful enough to rule politically. The US and Europe have just as much interest in "de-nazifying" Ukraine as anyone does, but no-one has a greater interest in denazification than Ukraine itself. It has been doing so through the election of a Jewish president, and a shift towards centrist democratic European-style rule-of-law governance - the polar opposite of Russia's fascist regime. Ukraine now has candidate status for EU membership, hardly something that Europe would accord a nation ruled by Nazis. Try looking outside Russia for the bigger picture. Putin’s Neo-Nazi mercenary Wagner Group includes a contingent known as Rusich, or Task Force Rusich, referred to as a "sabotage and assault reconnaissance group", which has been fighting as part of the Russian separatist forces in eastern Ukraine. Rusich are described as a far-right extremist or neo-Nazi unit, and their logo features a Slavic swastika. The group was founded by Alexey Milchakov and Yan Petrovsky in the summer of 2014, after graduating from a paramilitary training program run by the Russian Imperial Legion, the fighting arm of the Russian Imperial Movement. Less than 2% of most countries is far-right enough to warrant the label 'Neo-Nazi'. Be that as it may, it is not the responsibility of Russia to invade every country that has Neo-Nazis living there. Should Russia next invade France because they almost elected Marine Le Pen? We have a problem with Neo-Nazis here in the UK. Should Russia also invade the UK? All European countries have a problem with Neo-Nazis. Who should invade Europe? Neo-Nazis are everywhere, but only in Russia are they the government. Attributes of fascist ideology manifested by Putin and the Kremlin: 1. Intense nationalism 2. Mass appeal 3. Dictatorial rule 4. Anti-intellectual and atheoretical 5. Severe curtailments on freedom of speech 5. A single authorised news source disseminating state propaganda 6. Criminalisation, scapegoating and persecution of vulnerable minorities, like LGBT+ people and Jews 7. Rhetoric prone to aggrandisement, mendacity, deflection, logical fallacy 8. Emphasizing the will of the charismatic dictator as the sole source of inspiration of a people and a nation, as well as a vision of annihilation of all enemies of the state. Putin is a crime-boss, mass-murderer, arsonist, kleptocrat who understands force and force alone. His oligarchs have siphoned billions out of the Russian economy to offshore locations, stealing from the Russian taxpayer in plain sight with an elaborate protection racket masquerading as law and order. Putin does not respect or honour agreements of any kind. If you make an agreement with him, he will eventually break it, and blame you.

@DEATH TO THE URAINE NAZIS Russia were allies of Nazi Germany in 1939 and participated in the invasion of Poland following the false-flag Gleiwitz Incident. Then Russia murdered over 20,000 Polish prisoners of war in the Kalyan Massacre. Russia is an empire of evil. Looking for Nazis? Look no further than Russia.

@DEATH TO THE URAINE NAZIS Name-calling is childish, and it is not rebuttal. Ukraine is not ruled by a Nazi government. No Western nation would support such a regime. The behaviour of Russia makes it clear who the fascists are and it's not the Ukrainians who are fighting to save their country.

Yes, his jacket was interesting and the woman held her hands in such a way that one could write pages about that. The light in the background was fantastic and the camera man did his job so well. The sound levels were up to standard and BBC can always be relied on getting things just right so that the CONTENT is irrelevant as you have all confirmed.

Better than the original!!! Fantastic - the envelope was better than the letter. Let's talk about the envelope and the stamp - did you see the stamp on the envelope? And the stamp on the stamp? Yes, we all ask how the envelope was sealed - that would be an interesting debate now that the west is pursuing a war in Europe. Her accent was terrible but she translated some words with a brave attitude and never spoke before she heard what he said. That was kind of her. Not to just read the whole thing out quickly, but take time to get all the major points - which were.......no one has yet mentioned what the point was. No but the translation was beautiful and well worth talking about.

The young man asking if Khodorkovsky is only an opportunist is a good one. Much credit to Khodorkovsky, but he only challenged Putin because he was the most powerful oligarch and thought he could win! Khodorkovsky came to wealth easily and used all means to enrichen himself in Wild West Russia. The romantic story proposed by Martin Sixsmith is just too much, and putting the young man in his place was tasteless.

So we come to some content. Aha. Someone - clearly not from the UK - has something to say about the CONTENT!!!! HOW MANY COMMENTS HAVE I COMMENTED ON SO FAR?? And finally find a German who is willing to discuss the CONTENT of this "interview". Well done Klaus. Sehr sehr gut. Aber nicht genug! Weiter machen! There are many like myself who did not waste their time watching a propaganda show organised by the BBC, but instead looked to the comments for insights. And it is in someway critical - good. We must NEVER accept things without taking a stance of neutrality and objectiveness - that is what I was taught in one of the educational institutions I spent no less than 40 years of my life at. And I had claimed that a UK education was second to none - well that was last century. It took a German to BEGIN to unravel this nonsense propaganda show which has the audacity to attack Mr Putin the sworn destroyer of nazi trash in Ukraine.

So what is he talking about? Did you once spare the one minute to listen to what Mr Putin said as he ordered the military intervention in Ukraine? No the BBC refused to explain the other side. It kept a one sided view for all the mugs who think that BBC is the truth. Even the title of this piece should be enough to tell the viewer that what is coming is NOT the truth and is ONE sided. I AM THE TRUTH.

It’s very good to see young audiences learn about the history of Russia and Putins motivations. I’m glad they mentioned how he has hoarded the wealth for himself.KGB officers learn to be master manipulators of people. It takes courage to defy Putin, his critics all face death or prison. As soon as he challenged Putin the hammer came down. Bless Khordovkosky for continued activism and his articulate insights into what led to the collapse of the USSR and the current situation in Russia today. It’s a shame that so much senseless death and destruction is happening because one madman has “nostalgia” about expanding the boundaries back to the good old glory days of the USSR, he’s bringing his own country down.
