Three Israel-based partners and friends of Mikhail Khodorkovsky said Tuesday the Russian oligarch, isolated and banished to Siberia, fears there is a conspiracy to kill him. Leonid Nevzlin, Mikhail Brundo and Vladimir Dubov - all wanted by Russia on fraud charges - accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of targeting Khodorkovsky because he financed opposition parties. "Khodorkovsky says that he suspects that people want to physically eliminate him," Nevzlin told reporters in Ramat Gan, a city next to Tel Aviv, attributing his information to the oligarch's friends, family and business associates in Russia. In Moscow, Putin's press service declined to comment on the allegations.
