Pussy Riot Arrested & Thrown In Russian Jail AGAIN! What They Did In Sochi That Got Them Locked Up!

Two members of the Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot were arrested yet AGAIN today!

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who after being released from prison last year have quickly become the stars of the Pussy Riot movement, were detained on Tuesday in central Sochi!

With the Winter Olympic games going on right next door, the women were accused of a theft at Hotel Adler before police used extreme force to apprehend them! According to eyewitnesses, the arrest was EXTREMELY violent!

Tolokonnikova's husband, Petr Verzilov was there and described just how bad the situation got, saying:

"They were put to the floor and beaten and physical force was used to them when they refused to be questioned without the presence of their lawyer, who was on his way to the police department.”

Later, the girls posted pictures of themselves behind bars on Twitter (below), along with tweets describing their ordeal. Nadezhda explained:

"Unbelievable lawlessness, even we are amazed. Beat on the floor of the department, in the Olympic capital!”

Another tweet exclaimed:

"They dragged me on the floor in the hall of the department, hands tied behind back and thrown to the floor. Putin will teach you to love the motherland!”

That last line is also the title of a song that Pussy Riot members are in town to record in order to spread awareness about the social injustices being carried out by President Vladimir Putin and Russian law enforcement.

Both Nadezhda and Maria were eventually released from jail and Russian police say they are no longer considered suspects in this crime.

Well good, because we need you girls out spreading the word about what’s going on in Russia!

Jail them all you want! Pussy Riot will not rest until their country is TRULY free!

pussy riot denied parole

Madonna is NOT going to be happy about this!

Russia's republic of Mordovia has REJECTED a parole application by imprisoned Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova.

The 23-year-old peaceful protestor— who is only one of two still jailed of the 11 woman punk-rock collective— has been ordered to complete her two year sentence for charges of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" following last year's non-violent demonstration.

While Nadezhda has already completed half of her time in the slammer, many in Hollywood AND AROUND THE WORLD are outraged by the decision.

SO why did Judge Lidiya Yakovleva deny the so-called criminal early release to take care of her 5-year-old child??

The court authority said that evidence

Pussy Riot Is One-Third Freed! Russian Judge Releases Yekaterina Samutsevich!

pussy riot release Yekaterina Samutsevich two girls remain jail russia

One pussy down, two to go!

Yekaterina Samutsevich was just released from prison!

We aren't sure whether to thank our lucky stars one of the unjustly imprisoned Pussy Riot girls was freed or whether to continue feeling outraged that Russia's government continues keeping the majority of Pussy on lockdown!

The judge heard appeals from all three girls convicted of hooliganism after their contentious August concert but, deciding Yekaterina was the least incendiary Pussy member, he only set one of the ladies free!

Just because you jail the protestor doesn't mean the PROTEST is over!

Nor do we think it will be! Not while people's BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS are being stripped from them, anyway!

While three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich, have been sentenced to TWO years in prison for speaking their mind about Vladimir Putin on the altar of Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral, the two members of the group who were involved in the protest but not convicted have fled Russia to avoid the prosecution of 'hooliganism'…and are currently

Watch Pussy Riot's Punk Prayer That Got Them Two Years In Prison

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersPolitik

Russian punk band Pussy Riot has just been given a 2-year prison sentence after already serving six months behind bars for protesting Vladimir Putin's oppressive policies at the alter of Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral.

Check out the video (above) to see Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich perform their hooliganism song Punk Prayer and let us know if their "crime" is worthy of the punishment they received.

We respect these women so much for standing up for freedom of expression and how they CONTINUE to dissent a government they believe to be corrupt. In her closing statements to the court on August 8, Alyokhina stated:
