Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, who has been serving an eight-year prison sentence in Russia, went on hunger strike Tuesday.

Khodorkovsky has accused the government of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin of pursuing a vendetta against him in violation of the law.

The former head of Russian oil giant Yukos was imprisoned in 2003 on charges of tax evasion and money laundering.
