Khodorkovsky will discuss the current human rights and political situation in Russia and the importance of supporting civil society there as it develops. Though he cannot return to Russia for fear of endangering his father, famed political prisoner, businessman and author Mikhail Khodorkovsky, Pavel maintains close relationships with many Russian opposition leaders and will relay his thoughts on the current political and socio-economic situation. He will also elaborate on what Americans can do to help support Russia on its journey to modernization and democracy.
