Roald Zelichenok, newly freed from a prison camp, arrived in Moscow on Sunday and vowed to fight for freedom of other Soviet citizens who he says were jailed for their beliefs. He said that his release on Friday came as an "absolutely incredible surprise" despite some signs as early as last fall that his prison conditions were improving. Zelichenok was one of at least 43 people freed from prison, labor camp or exile during the past week, according to physicist Andrei D. Sakharov.

Soviet authorities have freed 42 dissidents and human rights advocates from prison, labor camp or exile during the past week, a spokeswoman for physicist Andrei D. Sakharov said Saturday. It appeared to be the largest release of its kind since thousands of people put in prison camps in the Josef Stalin era were freed after the late Nikita S. Khrushchev made his denunciation of Stalin in 1956.
