VIENNA (Reuters) - Ukrainian industrialist Dmytro Firtash, wanted by the United States, has been released from detention in Austria after posting 125 million euros in bail, a Vienna court said on Friday.

One of Ukraine's most influential oligarchs, Firtash, 48, was arrested in Vienna on March 12 at the request of U.S. authorities, which have been investigating him since 2006 for suspected corruption.
