Report: Acid attacker is back at work in the Bolshoi

From the ever-attentive Ismene Brown:
Pavel Dmitrichenko, the Bolshoi dancer convicted and jailed (in 2013) for ordering the infamous acid attack on his boss at Russia’s chief ballet company, is reported to have been back in the Bolshoi doing ballet class for the past month, hoping to return to the stage.
An anonymous source, claimed to be another soloist, is quoted by the newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets describing the reaction of most of the dancers and theatre staff as welcoming, mostly considering that he has served his term and earned his right to have his life and career back.
Ismene rightly demands to know how such a crime can quickly be forgiven. Read here.
Perhaps the Bolshoi Theatre would like to clarify?
