Khodorkovsky promised Russia “a hard time” in the event of coming to power Bulk
Moscow. 9 Aug. INTERFAX.RU — Ex-head of Yukos Mikhail Khodorkovsky advised the Russians “to do the warehouse for hard times” in case of coming to power of opposition leader Alexei Navalny. About this businessman said in an interview with journalist Yuri Dude on the Youtube channel “wdwd”.
“I would it would have caused, on the one hand, joy, because I believe that any turnover of power is good,” said Khodorkovsky to the question Dude about how he would react to a hypothetical Bulk victory in the presidential election in 2018 year. “On the other hand, I would have definitely said, “Guys, do warehouses in tough times””.
According to Khodorkovsky, in this case five to six years Russia will return to the system of monopoly power that exists in the country now. “Monopoly power is when there is one center of legitimacy, one centre who has the authority to make decisions, all the others depend on him,” explained the businessman.
“The path that makes the leader in our country — it is always more or less one”. “So I think we should put the question is not “who” but “what” instead of Putin,” he said.
According to Khodorkovsky, the change of power in Russia will happen in eight years and would involve a transition to a presidential-parliamentary or a parliamentary Republic.
