Nadya and Masha at The Spotted Pig (more by Gretchen Robinette)
Pussy Riot

Masha Alyokhina and Nadya Tolokonnikov, who maybe aren't but maybe are still in Pussy Riot, recently returned to Russia (specifically, Sochi, where the Olympics are currently happening) after visiting NYC, and The Guardian reports that they've since been arrested by Russian police:

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina said they had come to the Winter Olympics to hold a Pussy Riot performance, but were simply walking down the street when they were detained.

"We were just walking around Sochi when they grabbed us," said Tolokonnikova by 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."

...As of early afternoon, she had not yet been questioned, and said "nobody is telling us anything" about what will happen next.

"We are in Sochi in order to carry out a Pussy Riot action," wrote Tolokonnikova on Twitter shortly after the detention. "The song is called, 'Putin will teach you how to love the motherland'".

This is less than two months since they were initially freed.

UPDATE: BBC News has since reported that they've been released: "The two band members and three other women emerged from the police station in Sochi wearing their trademark ski masks after their brief detention."

Ah here we are god forbid they're out of the headlines for a week. Well fuck them, they are criminals in an oppressive country and should be treated as such. Where is the public outcry for domestic political prisoners. None, because they get no exposure since no one cares unless your entire gimmick is publicity stunt after publicity stunt.

Are these girls that thick going to Sochi? The Russian government had made it clear that Sochi is an ultra police state, due to the threat of terrorism, where anyone that hasn't been pre screened for Sochi would be arrested/thrown out. How can you even feel sorry for them?

They should have thrown away the key.

isn't the point of what they're doing basically to get arrested?

These comments are so funny! But not as funny as the idea in Joe Biden's head that he has a snowball's chance in hell of wining the presidency.
