Son of Russia's most famous prisoner: Putin afraid of my dad

The son of Russia's most famous prisoner, Mikhail Khodorkovsky, speaks with CNN's Christiane Amanpour about his father's future.

"It's very simple," Pavel Khodorkovsky told Amanpour. "Mr. Putin is afraid of my father. He is for some reason afraid of my father as a political adversary, which is not the case. My father has never been involved directly in politics."

    Russia is moving towards dictatorship. Recent legislation passed through the Parliament by Mr. Putin- Mr. Medvedev duo takes away people's freedoms of gathering and speech and opportunities to make their society better through work in non-government non-profit organizations. The Khodorkovsky case was at the beginning of this drift and is very representative of Mr. Putin's policy and plans.
