Putin may release pussy riot members

  • Putin may free the two Pussy Riot members named Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, who are currently locked up in Russia. Reports suggest that the Russian president plans on releasing thousands of prisoners since it's the anniversary of the country's 1993 constitution. 

    Only criminals charged with things such as "hooliganism" are expected to be released and serious ones won't be eligible. 

    The 30 Greenpeace activists appear to be eligible as well. However, none of these releases are confirmed and each case will be individually looked at. A Russian lawmaker noted that some people may not want to be amnestied if they consider themselves to be innocent.
