MOSCOW (Reuters) - Former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky left Russia for Germany after his release from prison on Friday following a presidential pardon, the Russian federal prison service said.
The prison service said on its website that Khodorkovsky had requested documents enabling him to leave the country and left on a flight for Germany.
The German foreign office said it could not comment immediately.
