Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokno Arrested Again In Russia

Article written by Kev W - Jun 13, 2015

No stranger to the Russian authorites, particularly following her much publicised prison spell in 2012/13, Nadya Tolokno (real name Nadezhda Tolokonnikova) was arrested in Moscow yesterday, along with fellow activist Katherine Nenasheva. The pair were detained after carrying out formal duties, in this case sewing a Russian flag (shown left), whilst wearing prison uniform.

Newsweek reported the incident and spoke to the Pussy Riot member following her release several hours later:

"They said it was illegal to sew in a public space, that we should do it at home. "An agent said, 'It’s not a concentration camp, but there are limits.' A spokesman for the Moscow police said they were arrested for "committing a public nuisance," according to Newsweek.

In a statement, Tolokno said the following:

"Action "DON'T BE AFRAID"

For 30 days the activist Katherine Nenasheva will be living her regular life wearing a prison robe of a female convict. She goes to exams, takes meetings, goes to the movies, gets groceries, goes out - she continues her daily life.

June 12 is the 18th day of Katherine Nenasheva's action and also Russia Day - an important holiday in Russia that celebrates our flag and Constitution. On this day I am joining Katherine to sew a huge Russian flag in the same prison uniform that I wore during my time in the prison camps.

We will sew the Russian flag on Bolotnaya square, the square that became the starting point for many years in prison for dozens of activists who went out to protest Putin's regime in May 2012. So here we are, on this square, and we will sew the sign "PRISON CAMP RUSSIA" to the face of the Russian flag on Russia Day.

Nadya Tolokonnikova"
