Red Corner: Bushby on the Move

Good news for Karl Bushby. The British adventure arrested last month for illegally entering Russia while attempting an around-the-world walk has had his deportation ruling reversed and can continue on his way.

Things were looking glum for Bushby until Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich stepped in to help. Abramovich is actually governor of the region in which Bushby was arrested but claimed he had no power over the ruling seeing as Bushby broke a federal, not state law. Nonetheless, Abramovich who lives in London and owns the Chelsea Football Club, apparently worked behind the scenes to help out the adventurer who can now begin his long walk across Siberia.

(Thanks BlottoOttoMan, for the tip on the recent ruling).
