PUSSY Riot are free. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina have been granted amnesty,  two months short of their scheduled release after spending nearly two years in prison for their protest at Moscow’s main cathedral.

They used their first press conference to state their sim to get rid of Russian President Vladimir Putin. They said their release was just “window dressing” for a corrupt regime.

The  Daily Telegraph notes Nadezhda stating:

“Our attitude to Vladimir Putin has not changed. We’d like to do what we said in our last action – we’d like him to go away…”
