Chodorkovsky: Putin`s Reign will fall down in ten years
Ex-tycoon and opponent of Russian regime Mikhail Chodorkovsky says Putin`s realm will break down in about ten years
“Puttin`s Reign will end up in ten years”, – said Russian dissident Mikhail Chodorkovsky in his interview to BBC.
“Yes, todays it seems to be an impossible mission. But I`m sure soon in is going to change as a time goes and I definitely will have an impact on it.
I'm considered by President Putin as a threat, economically, because of the possible seizure of Russian assets abroad, and politically, as someone who will potentially help democratic candidates in the coming 2016 elections. Now President faced a lot of problems with Ukraine, Syria and economic crush. It makes him weaker," he said.
He told the BBC that he would "help young political activists in Russia to gain political experience and present an alternative to the existing regime".
Chodorkovsky understands it is far too optimistic to speak of regime change in Russia now, but he is quite confident that within 10 years the regime will be changed and hope to play a significant role in that.
