    Human rights community of Russia has called all sacrifices of the «Yukos case» political prisoners. I must say that it was not an ordinary event, because we know how public opinion is inclined regarding the sacrifices of the «Yukos case». Nevertheless, human rights activists practically unanimously admitted all the people who suffered in the «Yukos case» political prisoners. We have addressed our request to the «Amnesty International» to examine this question. The «Amnesty International» shows prudence, there are certain circumstances why they act like this. But I know that this question was examined there very carefully, I hope, that some day we will gain a victory and the «Amnesty International» will also admit them political prisoners.
