“Open Russia” Khodorkovsky will be closed due to lack of funds

    The site of the non-profit organization Open Russia will close on July 10. The reason for this was the financing problems that began in March of this year after the arrest of all accounts of the organization.

    Open Russia was founded in January 2005 by the ex-head of Yukos Mikhail Khodorkovsky. The organization conducts projects related to the support and development of democratic civic initiatives, including those coming from the regions.

    Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s press center reports that Open Russia employees can no longer maintain the site on their own: “Unfortunately, despite the sincere desire of Open Russia employees and the chairman of the organization’s board, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, to continue the organization’s activities, including information to support lawsuits, we are forced to state the complete impossibility of continuing to maintain and maintain the site from personal funds. ”

    At the same time, “Open Russia”, despite the cessation of project and financial and economic activities, says it intends to continue working, namely, to conduct legal proceedings in five lawsuits and complaints against decisions and actions of law enforcement and judicial authorities.
