Russian Police Search for More Pussy Riot Members


Shortly after receiving their sentence and sharing the song “Putin Lights Up the Fires”, Reuters reports that Russian police are searching for more members of Pussy Riot involved in the February protest. Last Friday, three members were convicted of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” and sentenced to two years in prison. It’s unknown how many members of the band the Kremlin are hunting for; Pussy Riot’s roster includes more than 10 people..

“The probe is currently ongoing, search activities are being conducted,” a spokesperson for the Moscow police told AFP (via Business Insider). Police have yet to identify the suspects in question. Pussy Riot lawyer Mark Feigin said that could potentially mean anyone “in a balaclava” could get arrested and put on trial (via Reuters).
