Putin has commuted Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s sentence. According to the Russian prison service, he has been freed.
Putin toadies say Khodorkovsky’s clemency petition implies admission of guilt. Of course it doesn’t. His mother is reported to be seriously ill – she’s close to 80 – and prosecutors were building charges against him.
Coerced confessions don’t count.
