NIZHNY NOVGOROD, June 1. /TASS/. Russian nuclear physicist Vladimir Golubev, arrested in April on suspicion of revealing classified information, has been freed under amnesty, his lawyer told Tass on Monday.
"Vladimir Golubev has been set free. The case has been dismissed," Yevgeny Gubin said about his 66-year-old client. A criminal case was opened against Golubev last summer. He was accused of revealing classified information in a scientific report at a conference in Prague in the spring of 2013.
On April 22, the Sarov city court ruled the arrest for two months of the former employee of the Federal Nuclear Centre in Sarov, a nuclear research hub in the Nizhny Novgorod region. He was arrested for violating recognizance not to leave.
On May 29, the scientist agreed to be freed under amnesty in connection with the 70th anniversary of WWII victory, Gubin added.
