    Russian Punk Band Members Lose Appeal to Stay in Moscow Prison - Reuters

    October 15, 2012



    Two members of punk band ____y Riot lost their appeal to stay in a Moscow pre-trial detention center on Monday, their lawyer said, and will now serve the remainder of their terms in a remote penal colony where conditions are much tougher.

    Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Maria Alyokhina, 24, had their two-year sentence imposed over a cathedral protest against Vladimir Putin upheld by Moscow City Court last week. They are convicted of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.

    Both Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina have small children and lawyers are saying that a transfer to a colony outside Moscow where the regime is more strict than in detention centers will complicate their contacts with families.

    "There are many concerns there -- their safety, their health. A barrack for 150 people is not the same thing as a cell for four people," lawyer Mark Feigin told Reuters. The nearest penal colony is located about 100 km from Moscow.

    According to the Russian law only convicts with prison terms of less than six months can serve out their sentences in pre-trial detention centers. The law also makes an exception for inmates with skills needed in such centers.

    That's not an error. It's actually very clever. They are being xfer'd from a Moscow prison to a Penal Correction Colony 100km outside the city where things apparently 'get real' in russian prisons. It is apparently SOP.

    Think County Jail to Federal "Pound-You-in-the-Ass" Prison.

    Oh, and read the damn article.

    Afterthoughts.

    I'd bang the one on the right.

    They must have terrible music (aka normal punk music) to not have blown up by now.

    Russian laws are horrible but I don't give a flying ****, re-elect emperor putin.

    ATP--what? these girls are punk as hell.

    (they're certainly on the same level as Bikini Kill, Heavens to Betsy, Slant 6, Bratmobile, Huggy Bear or any riot grrl band from the early 90s.)

    I watched a doc on Ai Weiwei yesterday. every once in awhile I'll read something about a western artist, and how "courageous" their most recent publicity stunt is, but these artists in autocratic countries are really putting themselves out there.

    Cossacks attack protest group at the Sochi Olympics.

    Link won't work since RBR has more censorship than NY Times.
