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

pussy riot jailed again wenn doodle

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!

Second Giraffe On Death Row Is Getting Offers To Go To A Zoo To Be "Saved?" Where Should He Go??

Filed under: ZooCrazzzzyGiraffe

The Chechen President and two members of the Moscow Circus have offered to save the second Marius!

Ever since word got out that a second giraffe, who shares the same name as a previously murdered giraffe, was possibly going to be killed at a Danish zoo, people started going nuts.

All sorts of offers to save him started flooding in, along with threats and petitions to not kill the beautiful creature.

Jyllands Park Zoo, current host of Marius the giraffe (the living one), assured everyone that unless a female giraffe was brought in for breeding purposes, Marius would be safe.

But that still means if a female giraffe shows up, they're gonna kill the hell outta Marius.

Thankfully, the Chechen President, Ramzan Kadyrov, has offered to save the giraffe, saying:

Chobani Yogurt Banned From Sochi Olympics Is Being Given To The Homeless, But Even They Don't Want It!

chobani yogurt not getting any love at new york shelters

It looks like Ann Curry and stray dogs aren't the only ones not welcome at the Sochi Olympics!!

Last week, we mentioned that a HUGE shipment of Chobani Yogurt heading to Russia was stalled in New York after they failed to get the proper food and health certifications!

Well the next logical step was to donate the 5,000 plus containers of the snacks to local food shelters and soup kitchens. The only problem is not everyone has a taste for the greek yogurt!

The Daily Show Almost Causes An International Incident In Russia! Watch The Cold War Almost Start All Over Again HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsGIFs

We might have to increase our DEFCON level like ASAP.

The Daily Show sent correspondent Jason Jones over to Russia (or as he basically calls it, "America with a f*cked up alphabet") in a Winter Olympics segment that almost reignited the Cold War.

At one point in his Moscow trip, Jason actually talks with former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, and holy glasnost and perestroika! Things got tense!

Mikhail instantly seemed like he wasn't having any of his interview with Jason:

“Who asked for this meeting? If you bring cameras in here again, I will put you against the wall.”

Oh, Mikhail! What a prankster! CAN SOMEONE CALL OUR EMBASSY IN MOSCOW NOW?! WE NEED TO EXTRACT JASON!

But seriously that was actually the most terrifying thing we've ever seen. However, just like opening a Russian doll, there was even more to this strange interview.

After being questioned about whether or not he could put back the Berlin Wall, Mikhail Gorbachev eventually lost his patience with Jason, grabbed his finger, and let Jason know that the one-on-one was done-and-done:

"Okay, I've had enough of this. Let's wrap it up."

Whoa, check out the KGB skills on Mikhail, right?

While you wipe the cold sweat from your brow knowing that we narrowly avoided mutually assured destruction, ch-ch-check out the segment…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

No real way to Kool-Aid Man yourself out this one!

After U.S. Olympic bobsledder Johnny Quinn got locked in his bathroom and had to bust out of the door, he then went and got stuck in an elevator!

Luckily, he used his bobsledding strength to punch a huge hole and get out of the bathroom, but this time he wasn't so lucky!

His daring escape led to something much, much worse: he soon found himself stuck in an elevator (above)!

That's just absurd, Russia! Get your act together!

LOLz! Stay away from places with doors, Johnny!

We guess!

P.S. He totally found his way out, thankfully!

NOT cool, Russia!

It looks like the Sochi Olympics opening ceremonies WERE just for show — specifically in the tolerance department!

We're getting reports of Russian police detaining gay rights activists for trying to protest on Moscow's famous Red Square. This was right before Putin opened the Olympic games, trying to prove he was tolerant with moves like having t.A.T.u. perform!

Apparently 10 protesters were detained in Moscow and four in St Petersburg — and allegedly two of those people were actually
