    MOSCOW, February 16 (RIA Novosti) - The shareholders of the YUKOS oil company, Leonid Nevzlin and Vladimir Dubov, whom the Prosecutor General's Office put on the international wanted list, are ready to give their shares to the state in exchange for the release of Mikhail Khodorkovsky and Platon Lebedev, the Bloomberg Agency reported.

    "If we receive a guarantee for the release of our friends, we shall give our packages in exchange," said Nevzlin.

    Khodorkovsky is kept under arrest from October 25, 2003. He is accused under seven articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

    Nevzlin and Dubov are among the ten persons whom the Prosecutor General's Office put on the international wanted list in connection with the YUKOS case. The cost of their packages of shares has been estimated at about 14.5 billion dollars.
