Russian Tycoon Lebedev Begins His Community Service

Russian businessman Alexander Lebedev has started his 150-hour term of community service penalty for a brawl with another businessman live on TV by building a children’s playground in a village in the Tula region.

      Lebedev was handed down the punishment in July for punching realty developer Sergey Polonsky during the filming of a talk show in 2011.

      Lebedev is supposed to work as an assistant there for four hours a day. He has started serving his term in the village of Popovka 250 kilometers (150 miles) outside Moscow, in the Tula region, where he is officially registered.

      Formerly a shareholder in the country’s top airline Aeroflot, and former owner of his own budget airline RedWings, Lebedev owns several British newspapers, including The Independent, and Kremlin-critical Novaya Gazeta newspaper.
