Chukotka court is considering a cassation by Karl Bushby of Britain and Dimitri Kieffer of the U.S
Chukotka court is considering a cassation by Karl Bushby of Britain and Dimitri Kieffer of the U.S., who insist on revision of a ruling by the court of a lower instance, which found them guilty of violating Russian state border and ruled that they pay a fine of 2,000 rubles [USD 1=RUB 27.2] and be deported from Russia. Deportation will automatically deny them the right to enter Russia during the next five years. Bushby and Kieffer are asking the court to invalidate the resolution so as to be able to return to Chukotka next year Bushby, a former Birtish paratrooper, plans to complete his much-publicized attempt to walk 36,000 miles from South America to Britain. He began the adventure in 1998. Kieffer, an endurance racer from Alaska, reportedly joined the man for the Baring Strait crossing. Bushby said he could not drop Russia out of his walking agenda, since the country, according to him, is too big Kieffer also has a reason to seek an opportunity to return to Russia – he is pondering a bike tour from Alaska to Europe. The two men were detained in the town of Uelen April 1 after having crossed the Baring Strait. They had commercial Russian travel visas but no special permits for staying in border zones on Russian territory. Another problem is that they bypassed an official border-crossing and customs station.
