Pussy Riot Release New Video And Another Member Is Arrested By Russian Authorities

While supporting Alex Navalny, the Russian politician allegedly poisoned by the Russian government, Pussy Riot member Maria Alyokhina was arrested and charged with “violation of sanitary and epidemiological rules” after attending a huge protest last January 23rd.

Maria was supposedly held for 48 hours and now waits for results from a criminal case. According to Russian media, Meduza Maria is currently under house arrest.

Pussy Riot demands that political prisoners in Russia are released, including Navalny and Alyokhina, and furthermore, they ask for: “the police to stop beating the protesters and stand together with us, we ask Putin and his team to leave the Kremlin ASAP”.

While shooting the music video in St. Petersburg Russian police interrupted the production claiming that it contained gay propaganda and that it incited hatred. According to Pussy Riot’s YouTube page 13 individuals were arrested during the video shoot.
