Pastafarian minister Micheal Lusefovich is free

Great news — Pastafarian minister Micheal Lusefovich has been released from prison after nearly 2 years, and is currently living in Israel.

Micheal was the head of Russia’s Church of the FSM. He was charged unjustly for working with a democratic opposition group, Open Russia, that had been outlawed by the Russian government. The conviction was related to hosting lectures for independent election monitors, held at the premises of the Church of the FSM.

I am very happy to hear that he is free, living in Israel, and doing well.

Here is a message he has sent to us:
