Karelia for Khodorkovsky

Jailed former Yukos CEO Mikhail Khodorkovsky is to arrive at a prison in the Karelia republic near the Finnish border on Friday, a law enforcement source told Interfax on Thursday.

Khodorkovsky left Moscow earlier this week. Officials have not informed the public or his lawyers and family about his whereabouts since.

The businessman applied for parole after his trial in Moscow, and it was unclear Thursday whether a city court would proceed with the application or demand that he refile the request in Karelia.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
