‘A Russian Prisoner’ by Mikhail Khodorkovsky (in French)

Published in October 2013 

In the book, Mikhail Khodorkovsky draws portraits of his fellow prisoners, criminals in today’s Russia, whom he has met in the labour camps – Gulags – where he has been incarcerated for the last 10 years.  He makes no mention of his former company Yukos Oil, or the Kremlin, but his intriguing conclusions in the book go far beyond a simple description of Russia’s prison system.

The original title: ‘Un prisonnier Russe’
