MOSCOW, May 31 /TASS/. Bolshoi’s former soloist Pavel Dmitrichenko who was convicted for an acid attack on Sergey Filin, the former artistic director of the Bolshoi Theatre’s ballet troupe, has been released on parole, Dmitrichenko’s lawyer Sergey Kadyrov told TASS.
"Indeed, Pavel has been released on parole. He is already at home in Moscow," Kadyrov said.
Dmitrichenko thanked everybody who had supported him on his page in Facebook. "Your kind hearts were my lighthouse of hope on my difficult path. The truth has defeated lies," the ballet dancer wrote. He promised to see his family, relatives and friends soon.
In December 2013, Moscow’s Meshchansky court considered Dmitrichenko to be guilty of organizing an attack on Sergey Filin, the then artistic director of Bolshoi’s ballet troupe. Dmitrichenko was sentenced to six years in a high security colony. The attack’s perpetrator Yuri Zarutsky got a ten-year-sentence in a high-security colony in view of the presence of a particularly dangerous backslide in his actions. Driver Andrei Lipatov who had brought Zarutsky to the crime scene was sentenced to four years in a high security colony.
The acid attack on People’s Artist of Russia Sergey Filin took place near his home on Moscow’s Troitskaya Street on January 17, 2013. Filin suffered serious burns to his face and eyes and had to undergo several surgeries.
