By Catherine Belton

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, the jailed Russian oil tycoon, has derided efforts by the president, Dmitry Medvedev, to improve the rule of law in the country, saying reform is futile as long as his controversial guilty verdict remains in force.

Critics said the ruling highlighted the limits of Mr Medvedev’s drive to strengthen the independence of Russia’s courts.
