2 Pussy Riot members sent to prison camps

Two convicted members of the Russian all-girl punk band Pussy Riot are on their way to two prison camps located in Russia, their lawyer said on Monday.

According to unconfirmed reports, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova will serve their sentences at the camps in the Perm region and Mordovia, respectively.

In August, three Pussy Riot members, including Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova, were jailed for two years each for performing a “punk prayer” at the Moscow Crist the Savor Cathedral.

Shortly after, Yekaterina Samutsevich was freed with a suspended jail sentence.
