Putin loyalist Andrey Kostin says Khodorkovsky should be released

VTB President Andrey Kostin

In a BBC interview with Stephen Sackur, President of VTB Bank Andrey Kostin says that when it comes to former Yukos chairman Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s time in prison, “enough is enough.”

When pressed by Sackur, the Russian banker somewhat surprisingly (given his ties to Putin) says that Khodorkovsky should be set free and agrees with the interviewer that his release would be symbolically important, giving confidence to foreign investors.
