Pussy Riot to be freed under amnesty

According to recent reports from The Voice Project and Russia Today, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (Pussy Riot‘s only members who are still imprisoned) are set to be freed under an amnesty dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Russian Constitution.

Nadezhda’s husband Pyotr Verzilov has confirmed the two will be among the 25,000 people to be freed but seems unclear as to exactly when it will be happen:

“We do not know yet when this will happen, because it is unclear when the bill will be voted by the Duma and how fast it will be applied to prisons – could be from 2 weeks to 2 months until they are freed.”

We wish the best for Maria and Nadezhda, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details on exactly what their future holds come to light.
