Pussy riot member cut off from family

  • Jailed Pussy Riot member's family has accused Russian authorities for attempting to cut her off from them as well as the rest of the outside world. 

    Nadezhda Tolokonnikova's husband said he hasn't been able to contact her since she was moved to a new prison on Oct. 21 by train. 

    After staging two hunger strikes over prison conditions, Tolokonnikova was granted her wish and was moved, but her location is now being kept secret. 

    Her father mentioned that no one knows anything and wonders if she's sick or been beaten.

    "This is basically the only way they have to punish Nadya," Tolokonnikova's husband said. "'Let's cut her off from the outside world.'"
