3. Yes that's true

What gives this interview credibility is that Mikhail Khodorkovsky was directly under Putin for years. It's not just speculation by someone in the West. I think what makes this compelling is the cold direct assessment of where Putin is going and the utter brutality of his mindset.

One statement he made that I thought was interesting - that Russia really isn't an oligarchy. It's a dictatorship. And Putin has absolute total power within Russia.

Here's another interview with Khodorkovsky (Erin Burnett)
