A lawyer for a Russian woman accused of treason for allegedly reporting to the Ukrainian Embassy about possible troop movements says his client will be released from custody by the end of February 3.
Sergei Badamshin, a lawyer for Svetlana Davydova, said on February 3 that Russian authorities had agreed to release Davydova from Moscow's Lefortovo detention center on condition that she does not leave Moscow.
The 36-year-old Davydova was detained January 21 at a home she shares with her husband and seven children, including an infant daughter, in Vyazma, about 240 kilometers west of Moscow.
A court initially ordered her held in detention through March 19 ahead of her trial.
She faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted of treason.
Another of Davydova's lawyers, Ivan Pavlov, said on February 2 that an appeal had been filed with the Moscow City Court in an effort to win his client's release.
