Russia's ‘Kuban secessionist’ goes free after almost two years behind bars for ‘inciting separatism’


After almost two years in prison, the organizer of a rally in favor of greater “federal” autonomy for Russia’s Kuban region has gone free. In December 2015, Darya Polyudova was sentenced to two years in prison for inciting extremism and violations of Russia’s territorial integrity.

“I’m going to continue this fight,” Polyudova said, after going free on Friday.
