Just in: Russian director is released from house arrest

A Moscow judge today set free Kirill Serebrennikov after almost two years of house arrest in which he was unable to communicate with the outside world.

The distinguished theatre and opera director had been charged with embezzlement, which he denies.

Many believed he was arrested for critisicing the Putin regime.

Serebrennikov, 49, is out on bail. He is prohibited from going beyond the city limits of Moscow.
