APCO Works to Restore Trust in Russia's Robber Baron

Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a former Communist Youth Leader leader turned Russian billionaire with ties to the Russian mafia, is paying APCO Worldwide to restore investors' trust in his scandal-plagued company, Yukos. His new motto has become "honesty, openness, responsibility" -- quite a turnaround for someone who has trafficked in women, laundered money and defrauded minority investors. PR Watch has reported in the past on APCO's work for the tobacco industry and its ideas on how to create front groups. Is there anything these guys won't do?
