Russian Oil Tycoon Released From Prison, Russian former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, one of President Vladimir Putin’s most prominent foes, was released from prison after more than a decade behind bars, officials said Friday.

“He is freed from further imprisonment,” the Russian Federal Prison Service wrote on their website. “After his release he has flown out to the Federal Republic of Germany, where his mother is undergoing treatment. We underline that his departure was based on his own request and the exit documents were processed following his personal request.”

Khodorkovsky’s lawyer Vadim Klyuvgant told Reuters by telephone: “He has left the camp. That’s all I can say.”
