Putin Jailed My Wife: Pussy Riot Member's Husband Speaks Out

September 22, 2012

In February, members of the feminist collective Pussy Riot staged a brief anti-Putin performance in a Moscow church, leading to the swift arrest of three members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, Maria Alyokhina, 24, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29, on grounds of "hooliganism." Their sentencing—two years in prison for their 40-second performance—sparked protests across the globe calling for their release and for freedom of expression in Russia.
