It might have been politically motivated, but there was a lot of money at stake as well. Yes, it could seem communist to do such a thing... BUT... you
have to realize what Yukos was about to do had the Russian government not intervened.
Yukos, before Khodorkovsky was arrested, was about to 'merge' with ExxonMobil, a Rockefeller-owned money machine. Essentially, ExxonMobil was going
to buy them out. Yukos was about to try this kind of enterprise again, despite Putin's warnings and actions against the former leader of Yukos and
his board members, so the Russians probably did this in order to keep their oil revenues inside of the Russian economy (oil is very important to the
Russian GDP). They know darned well that a nationalized economy is in their best interests, because they have seen what happens to other countries
like Indonesia when these kinds of deals are completed.
I am all for free enterprise and against communism, but the globaslist Rockefellers were greedily trying to take over a major part of Russian economy
with this Yukos deal. Even though they already had a big stake in the USSR in the past and helped fund the Bolsheviks in the first place, in the
1980's, they liquidated most of their assets which partially led to the fall of the Communist regime.
