Alex Harris from Devon, Anthony Perrett from Newport and London journalist Keiron Bryan are the first of six Brits to be given bail.
Russian cosmonauts made history today by taking the torch for the Sochi Winter Olympics into open space for the first time in history.
The Russian forces appear to have a taste for singing, with the police singing Daft Punk's Get Lucky after the army's Adele cover.
Pavel Dmitrichenko, the former lead dancer of the Bolshoi Ballet, has been sentenced to six years in prison for his part in an acid attack on the ballet's artistic director.
Co-accused Yuri Zarutsky, who admitted to throwing acid in Filin's face, was sentenced to 10 years in prison, and Andrei Lipatov, who drove Zarutsky to the scene, was sentenced to four years.
Sergei Filin, the artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet, lost most of the sight in one eye and 20 percent in the other when acid was thrown in his face in January this year as he made his way home from the theatre.
Dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko, who admitted that he wanted the director "roughed up" has denied that he knew his co-defendant Yuri Zarutsky would use acid, and pleaded not guilty.
Zarutsky, who has admitted guilt, said that throwing acid in Filin's face was his own idea and he had not told Dmitrichenko of his plan. A third defendant, Andrei Lipatov, was accused of driving Zarutsky to and from the scene of the crime.
All three were found guilty in a Russian court this morning and are expected to be sentenced later day.
Disgraced Pavel Dmitrichenko faces a lengthy jail sentence after being found guilty today in an acid attack that nearly blinded the artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet last January.
Following a month-long trial, Judge Yelena Maximova said the 29-year-old and two co-defendants had intentionally caused grievous bodily harm to the victim, Sergei Filin.
State prosecutors have asked for a nine-year prison sentence for Dmitrichenko.
Sentencing is expected later today
Pavel Dmitrichenko, the ballet dancer accused of organising an attack that nearly blinded the Russian Bolshoi Ballet's artistic director, has been convicted of the crime by a Russian court.
Mr Dmitrichenko was convicted alongside two co-defendants,
The dancer had claimed that he told an alleged accomplice to beat up the director but not to throw acid.
A Russian torchbearer's clothing caught fire as he carried it through a Siberian city in the latest mishap to befall the Olympic flame.
A clip posted on YouTube by the Russian site Lifenews shows former Olympic bobsledder Pyotr Makarchuk parading the torch through a crowd in the city of Abakan when flames suddenly leap from the left shoulder and upper arm of his jacket.
Escorts immediately put out the flames and Makarchuk was not injured, said Roman Osin, spokesman for the Russian Sochi 2014 torch relay.
He said the flames were caused by drops of liquid gas that fell on Makarchuk's jacket in the incident yesterday.
The Olympic flame has been to the North Pole and the International Space Station on its 40,000-mile journey to Sochi.
However, it has gone out dozens of times, including minutes after President Vladimir Putin handed it over in Red Square last month.
One of the 'Arctic 30' activists who was taken prisoner by the Russian authorities has said that Greenpeace will continue to carry out similar protests in the future.
Frank Hewetson told Sky News' Murnaghan: "I think it will happen again for sure. I'm just not going to comment about whether it will happen in Russia. I just don't have the mental head space to make that sort of decision at the moment."
"You have to take a technical approach if you are going to get on an oil rig. It has to be done safely, you have to have the right equipment, you have to have the training."
The Olympic torch is certainly clocking up the miles - taking in both outer space and now the deepest depths of the Earth on its historic relay.
Earlier this month the flame travelled to the International Space Station and was taken on a spacewalk by Russian cosmonauts.
Now it has been taken to the bottom of the world's deepest lake in Russia - Lake Baikal.
The Olympic torch is on an unprecedented 65,000-kilometre, 123-day journey, criss-crossing Russia ahead of the winter games in Sochi in 2014.
A British journalist who was held in a Russian prison after taking part in a protest in the Arctic two months ago has said that Greenpeace should have "frank discussions" about its tactics.
Freelance journalist Kieron Bryan said his first trip with the organisation had been a "baptism of fire".
Mr Bryan told BBC Radio 4's Today programme that the group were briefed about the risks before the trip: "We discussed the legal implications of doing a protest in Russia. I remember distinctly piracy being mentioned and the laughter that followed.
"I can't stress what a shock it was to everyone. We all thought that we would get a rap on the wrists and then be sent away, so to find ourselves facing 10 to 15 years was a very difficult time."
Greenpeace UK's executive director John Sauven insisted all those who had been on the Arctic Sunrise vessel had been given a proper briefing about the risks involved.
British Greenpeace activist Anthony Perett spoke to ITV News shortly after his release from a jail in Russia, saying he was happy with what he and his colleagues achieved but that he had "no plans to hand a banner off the Kremlin, ever."
Speaking on Skype, he said he did not regret his actions, and again condemned Russian authorities for their arrest, but said he was relieved to be released, and eager to get back home and back to work.
Russia has rejected calls from a United Nations maritime tribunal to release the Greenpeace ship and return its crew, and allow them and the ship to leave the country.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said the tribunal had no jurisdiction over its criminal prosecution of the crew.
The Hamburg-based International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea said it had accepted a Dutch request to order the provisional release of the Dutch-registered ship Arctic Sunrise and its crew.
