Russian Court Denies to Parole Pussy Riot Member

On Friday, April 26, Russian court denied Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova’s motion for parole.

      The application for parole was sent by Tolokonnikova's defense regarding the fact that she has a small child, has had no conflicts with other convicts and would readily be employed in the event of her release.

      However, In Friday’s ruling, the judge in the republic of Mordovia in Russia’s Volga Federal District decided that Tolokonnikova did not deserve parole as she had not admitted her guilt and had a record of breaking the penal colony’s regulations.

      Tolokonnikova’s defense will appeal the ruling, lawyer Irina Khrunova told a RAPSI legal news agency.

      Members of the Pussy Riot feminist punk band were sentenced to two-year imprisonment for hooliganism motivated by religious hatred after performing a "punk prayer" in downtown Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral and singing a song with words against the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill and then-Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
