The message reads that the civic activist was released after being charged on violations of public assembly rules. His wife, sister, activists of local department of "Yabloko" party and ten journalists are meeting him near the penitentiary.
Anastasia Zotova, the wife of Ildad Dadin also confirmed his liberation.
"Ildar is released, and now we shall decide how [he will] get home," Russia's state-run agency TASS quoted Zotova.
"I will continue to fight against Putin's fascist regime," Dadin said after his release in footage broadcast online by the independent Dozhd channel. "I will fight so that human rights are respected in Russia," Radio Liberty informs.
As it was reported earlier, the Presidium of the Supreme Court of Russian Federation has overturned a conviction against opposition activist Ildar Dadin, who was convicted earlier to three years in prison (reduced to 2.5 years later) for repeated breaches of public assembly rules.
Prior to that, dozens of people were detained in Moscow during a rally in support of political prisoners near the "Chistyye Prudy" metro station in January. The representative of the "New Opposition" announced the detention of more than 40 people.
