Platon Lebedev to be Freed

This hasn’t hit the western media yet (or if it has, it’s buried somewhere where no one can find it), but Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s business partner and lawyer, Platon Lebedev, has been freed from prison. I think this story is legitimate because the Russian-language media is carrying it.

I always felt bad for poor Platon. He was in prison for the same thing Khodorkovsky was, but somehow everyone always seemed to forget about him. I’m happy he’s free (or going to be free soon).

And thank you Jennifer for pointing this out to me.
