More Yukos Hilarity (Jen)

The Russian government has sold off chunks of Yukos, much to the dismay of everyone else with claims pending before a Dutch court.

The Russian government “might as well have offered up the Statue of Liberty to the participating bidders, as [it] has the same right to sell that landmark as [it] had to sell Yukos Finance—none whatsoever,” said the company.

(Jen: I heard yesterday that Russia levied back-taxes on The Clausing Barn Restaurant in Eagle, Wisconsin.)
