Russian officials hinted Thursday that President Vladimir V. Putin may rapidly pardon and order the release of U.S. businessman Edmond D. Pope, who was convicted this week of spying and sentenced to 20 years in prison. Anatoly Pristavkin, chairman of the president's clemency commission, said Pope sent an appeal to Putin on Thursday, a day after his sentence was handed down. Putin immediately passed it to the commission, which plans to consider it today.

Russia's presidential clemency commission recommended Friday that President Vladimir V. Putin free ailing U.S. businessman Edmond D. Pope, and President Clinton spoke to the Russian leader by phone urging the American's release. Pope's 20-year sentence for espionage, and the eight months he spent in a Moscow jail leading up to this week's conviction, have cast a pall over U.S.-Russian relations as Putin is trying to revive Moscow's global influence.
