Klein had been held in the Russian jail since 2007, awaiting extradition to Columbia, where he is wanted on charges of assisting drug traffickers and right-wing militias.In April, the European Court of Human Rights issued a ruling forbidding Russia from extraditing Klein to Columbia. Russia appealed the decision, but the appeal was denied last month.
