Putin says that Khodorkovsky appealed for pardon and referenced some “humanitarian circumstances”, in particular his havily ill mother.
What does it mean? Why did putin bring this up?
It was totally unpredictable. Putin said about the pardon after the end of the press conference answering a jornalist(who, by the way was also shoked, but ut must have been staged, don`t believe it wasn`t). Putin said Khodorkovsky had to appeal for pardon and he did it.
