The appeal, Khodorkovsky was sent on December 19. In it, he called the head of Central electoral Commission Ella Pamfilova and its employees “to fulfill their civic and professional duty to take the only legally possible solution is to deny registration to Vladimir Putin in presidents of the Russian Federation in connection with violation of the requirements of the Constitution.”
Their point of view, Khodorkovsky argued that “castling” of Putin and Dmitry Medvedev in 2008 was “a gross abuse of the constitutional right in the form of circumvention of the law” and its conspiracy by two politicians has repeatedly stated publicly.
On this appeal Pamfilova said on December 20: “I’m not afraid to take responsibility for their decision before the court of history, nor to anyone else, because it relied on the Constitution, the law, their life principles and beliefs. All the various forms of public pressure on me and my colleagues at the CEC are meaningless.”
Today, Khodorkovsky has published he received an official paper signed by the Secretary of the CEC, Maya Grishina. After two pages of references to various laws, at the very end of the text, the document States that interference in the activity of election commissions on the part of citizens is not allowed, and the text ends with the following phrase: “In terms of the arguments contained in Your offer, inform of the inadmissibility of abuse of the right to appeal.”
Similar wording Khodorkovsky is considered a “perversion, unknown to legal science.”
