Pussy Riot Members To Be Releases Early From Prison

(Radio.com) Members of the Russian punk rock outfit Pussy Riot, jailed last year after a protest performance inside Moscow's main cathedral, seem to be on the verge of release three months early under a new amnesty clause.

According to Reuters, the amnesty that will potentially release Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina ahead of the original March 2014 date will also allow 30 people arrested during a Greenpeace protest against arctic drilling to be freed and avoid trial. Part of the reason the Pussy Riot rockers are being set free early is due to them both having small children.

"I was not sorry that they [the Pussy Riot members] ended up behind bars," Russian President Vladimir Putin said during an annual news conference. "I was sorry that they were engaged in such disgraceful behavior, which in my view was degrading to the dignity of women. They went beyond all boundaries." more on this story
