(Radio.com) Less than two months after they were released from jail, former Pussy Riot members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina were arrested in Sochi, Russia while walking down the street.

The duo had arrived at the Winter Olympics to hold a Pussy Riot concert when they were detained. "We were just walking around Sochi when they grabbed us," Tolokonnikova told The Guardian via telephone from a police station not far from the Olympic Park. "They told us we are suspected of theft. Of course there has been no theft."

Tolokonnikova explained that she and her fellow bandmates were being followed since they arrived in Sochi on Sunday and spent several hours being questioned by security services on Monday, when they attempted to have a performance. more on this story
