Mikhail Khodorkovsky Announces New Project to Prosecute Criminals in Putin’s Regime

November 28, 2017

“I am happy to announce that one of our projects that we’ve been working diligently on in recent months is finally ready to come out into the light.  The project’s name is the “Dossier” centre and its aim is to assist in the formation and fortification of the rule of law and civil society in Russia through preparation of legal cases based on journalistic investigations.  In short: we’re preparing well-known investigations on the members of Vladimir Putin’s criminal entourage for real legal prosecution.

We are already at the stage of preparing cases and we would appreciate any help in collecting the necessary materials, whether they be published or unpublished research.  The most important and difficult thing on the path towards justice is obtaining documents and evidence (including authorised testimonies), which allow us to submit the cases to the correct Russian law enforcement agencies, or other appropriate jurisdiction outside of the Kremlin’s control.  Those who wish to share information with us, can do so through the project.”

— Mikhail Khodorkovsky, founder of Open Russia.


The “Dossier” Centre’s manifesto:

At last we have launched the long-awaited “Dossier” Centre.  Our goal is to build up the rule of law and civil society in Russia through the initiation of real legal investigations based on journalistic research.  We are working with both published and unpublished journalistic investigations in order to bring criminal proceedings against the criminal group that is controlling the Presidential post.  We are doing everything we can to get each case into the courts.
