Khodorkovsky Pays Tribute To Mandela

December 6, 2013

“Nelson Mandela was an inspiration to anyone anywhere who has sacrificed their freedom to fight for justice.

He won freedom for himself and his country peacefully, despite the ordeal inflicted upon him. And when he walked free, rather than slam the door in the face of his captors, he held it open for them to walk through with him.

Mandela was one of modern history’s most courageous, principled and dignified icons.
I send my condolences to his family and all the people of South Africa at this time of loss.

May the earth lie light upon him.”
