The complaint is published on the website of the Committee: we will be talking about that after the decision of the ECHR about the violation of the rights of Khodorkovsky’s Yukos, the country had to pay him compensation, but still did not.

First, as recalled by “Kommersant”, in March 2014, the government of the Russian Federation, according to Glasson received request copies of the required documents, but in September it became clear that the certified copy is still there.

In November 2015, the request was delivered to Russia by courier, which had authorization from the British foreign office, and at the same time Khodorkovsky has notified the Council of Europe on “misleading” information of the government about allegedly not provided the documents.

Read about the claims of Russia to Khodorkovsky.

As a result, in December 2015, the authorized representative of Russia to the ECHR Georgy Matyushkin reported that the payment, although it is “organized”, it was impossible to hold because of claims to Khodorkovsky bailiff on 17,4 billion roubles, informed, however, were recognized by the ECHR illegal, but not reversed by the Russian Supreme court.

Note that money, as officials say Khodorkovsky, in the case of receipt will be sent to the Lyceum in Coral, which is sponsoring the ex-owner of Yukos.
