Pussy Riot’s two escaped members ‘are recruiting foreign feminists for new actions!’
Two more members of Pussy Riot—the other part of the five who busted into the Christ the Savior Church in Moscow last February—have left Russia, says the group.
“In connection with the search, our two participants have successfully left the country! They are recruiting foreign feminists for new actions!” @Pussy_Riot tweeted Sunday.
Just days after three members—Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Mariya Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich—were sentenced to two years in prison for agitating the Russian orthodox with their punk prayer on the eve of Putin’s election, Interior Ministry spokesperson told a Russian news outlet that police were looking for the remaining members.
“We hurry to disappoint the Kremlin rats: 2 women left the country because of danger, but in Russia there are at least 12 Pussy Riot members left,” Pussy Riot also tweeted yesterday.
The group released a new song—”Putin Lights Up the Fires“—on the day of their arrest.
