Dates in History
1963—Mikhail Khodorkovsky, one of Russia's famous businessmen, is born.
Mikhail Khodorkovsky is a former Komsomol activist who became one of Russia's most powerful oligarchs. He was later convicted for fraud and tax evasion and received a 9-year sentence. As of 2004, Khodorkovsky was the wealthiest man in Russia, and was the 16th wealthiest man in the world, although much of his wealth evaporated because of the collapse in the value of his holding in the Russian petroleum company YUKOS. At the time of his arrest, he was considered the most powerful of the Russian business oligarchs.
