  3. Green activist out of jail after over a year

    RUSSIA: Environmental activist Evgeniy Vitishko has been released from prison after more than a year and a half behind bars on trumped-up charges.

    Mr Vitishko had warned against deforestation caused by construction for the Sochi winter Olympics, held in 2014.

    He was sentenced to three years in jail at a penal colony more than 600 miles from his home for supposedly damaging a fence that was concealing illegal building work in a protected forest area.
