In the 1990s, Mikhail Khodorkovsky was one of the most prominent personalities of Russian industry. The former oligarch had profited from the chaos that came after the dissolution of the Soviet Union, and became Russia's richest man. When he accused Putin's regime of corruption, he went to prison for ten years. He is now living in exile in London. Khodorkovsky's testimony serves as a means to paint a comprehensive portrait of post-Soviet Russia and show the roots of the current situation.
