Pussy Riot Members Arrested In Sochi Again

pussy riot arrested again

So much for Putin trying to make Russia seem more appealing on the international stage. Two members of the female punk band Pussy Riot, who were recently released from Russian prisons after being jailed for two years for charges of “hooliganism,” have once again been detained. Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova were meeting with journalists when, according to Tolokonnikova, they were “shoved into a police van.” She said police claimed they were being questioned about an alleged purse theft at their hotel and that she and her bandmember were “dragged across the police office face down.” She said “Now we are being questioned as witnesses in the case of a stolen purse, but initially when we were detained we were told we stole something.”
