Longtime Soviet dissident Genrikh Altunyan, 53, sentenced to seven years in a labor camp on charges of anti-state activities, has been released, according to physicist Andrei D. Sakharov. He said Altunyan telephoned him from the Ukrainian city of Kharkov to announce his release. Altunyan was moved from a labor camp in Siberia to a prison in Kharkov about seven weeks ago. Altunyan had been sentenced twice to labor camps for issuing public protests about the Soviet human rights record.
