I think Putin's imprisonment of Mikhail Khodorkovsky is the most fascinating business story of this moment. I do not know enough to know if Mikhail Khodorkovsky is an honest man, a dishonest man, or something in between.
I just read this interview with him on the PBS website, Frontline. I found it very interesting. He sounds like a guy who cares deeply about Russia and wants it to move to a true democracy. If this is really who he is and not just posturing on his part, then i think the free world should be very concerned about his imprisonment.
