Two Pussy Riot Members Flee

Rock and roll will never die, two members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot said, and split. A little over a week since three other members of the band were sentenced to two years in prison for thumbing their nose at Vladimir Putin and the Russian Orthodox Church, the all-female band announced that two more of its members have done the anti-oppression two-step and skedaddled out of the country. Law enforcement in Russia said earlier this week that they were still in pursuit of the missing members. “They are in a safe place beyond the reach of the Russian police,” said Pyotr Verzilov, the husband of jailed band member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, on Sunday.
