Khodorkovsky 'ready to stand in election'

From Interfax:

Jailed Yukos founder Mikhail Khodorkovsky is ready to take part in the upcoming State Duma by- elections but thinks that he will be barred from running in the poll.

"I am absolutely confident that they will not allow me to run. But if I receive letters from people whose opinions are important for me, I will agree, even being aware of the fact that, firstly, they will not let me win the elections, and, secondly, that renewed repression will follow," Khodorkovsky's lawyer Yury Shmidt quoted the former Yukos CEO as saying.
