Germany: Sochi celebrations should not be ruined - Khodorkovsky

Mikhail Khodorkovsky said the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games should be held in the name of sport and "millions of people". Khodorkovsky made the comments during a press conference at the Berlin Wall Museum, near Checkpoint Charlie, on Sunday.

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, 50, was released from prison on Friday after spending a decade behind bars for fraud, embezzlement and tax evasion.

Khodorkovsky's mother is seriously ill, and has been receiving cancer treatment in Berlin. Her ill health is said to be the reason behind President Vladimir Putin's decision to sign a Thursday decree granting Khodorkovsky's release. Putin himself cited "humanitarian principles" for his decision.
