Pussy Riot is officially free!!!

And shockingly enough, it was the man they were protesting against who is responsible for releasing them from jail!

Russian President Vladimir Putin!

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina were the two members of the political punk rock girl band who were locked up after staging an anti-Putin demonstration at Moscow’s Christ the Savior cathedral last year.

Putin, today, publicly scolded the two imprisoned women but confirmed that they will soon be pardoned from their two-year prison sentences under an amnesty bill. He explained:

"I feel sorry not because they went to prison, but because they committed that provocative act, which degraded women.”

The amnesty bill calls for the release of around 25,000 people who have committed nonviolent crimes and those who are mothers of small children.

Putin also stressed that these two members of Pussy Riot aren’t receiving any special treatment due to the countless calls from around the world for them to be released. Instead, he remarked:

"This isn’t a revision of the court verdict. This is an overall decision, which applies to them.”

The pair was initially expected to be released yesterday, but authorities claim they are still waiting for identification documents needed before they are freed.

Oh c’mon!

Let them out! Let them out! Let them out!

Don’t worry girls! You’ll be out from behind bars soon enough and just in time for the holiday!

Such great news!
