Khodorkovsky: I can't afford to fund politicians

From The Moscow Times:

Mikhail Khodorkovsky said Monday that he had no money to support political parties opposed to President Vladimir Putin.

"As far as the financing of any political project by me is concerned, it is unfortunately impossible in the foreseeable future," Khodorkovsky said in a statement via his lawyers and distributed by his press service.

"All my funds have been taken away by a group of people who have seized and ruined Yukos, once the most successful and flourishing company in the country," he said.

Many analysts have suggested that Khodorkovsky was still rich enough to be a major political player ahead of the 2008 presidential elections.
