I feel really conflicted about the whole thing. On one hand he exploited the system and made a bunch of money on the backs of the Russian people. But on the other hand it's very obvious that he was a better businessman than the other oligarchs who did very little to improve their assets. If not Kodorkovsky, someone else would have bought Yukos and just sat on it, and I wonder if that would be any better.
