Yacht Club Owner Released

Burevestnik Yacht Club co-owner Andrei Boiko, who faces smuggling charges, was released from custody last week, Interfax reported Monday.

The release last Wednesday followed a refusal by a Moscow court a day earlier to free Boiko on bail of 12 million rubles ($400,000). Kommersant reported Monday that the court relented after three people vouched for Boiko, two unidentified veterans and one public figure.
