Once a jailbird…

The four Pussy Riot members who were imprisoned earlier this month have been arrested again on the same day they were due to be released from prison.

Earlier this month, Veronika “Nika” Nikulshina, Olga Kuracheva, Olga Pakhtusova, and Petya Verzilov ran onto the pitch in the World Cup final. The four members of Pussy Riot were dressed in police uniforms in what was thought to be a statement against Russia’s political and prison systems.

Sentenced to “15 days of administrative arrest”, the members were reportedly banned from attending any sports events for three years.

It was also reported that the members were today charged with “the organization and holding of public events without prior written notice” according to a statement released by Pussy Riot’s Nadya Tolokonnikova.

They could face another ten days behind bars.

Since the incident, the band have shared new music including “Track About Good Cop”, “PONG!”, “Unicorn Freedom” and “КОШМАРЫ/NIGHTMARES”.
