Two Pussy Riot Members Flee Russia

Two members of the Russian punk collective Pussy Riot have fled Russia in order to avoid prosecution for an anti-Putin protest. The other three Pussy Riot members who participated in the protest - Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich - were recently sentenced to two years in jail for "hooliganism." According to Tolokonnikova's husband, Pyotr Verzilov, the two women are safe from Russian authorities.

"Since the Moscow police said they are searching for them, they will keep a low profile for now. They are in a safe place beyond the reach of the Russian police," he said by phone.

Asked if that meant a country which had no extradition agreement with Russia, Verzilov said: "Yes, that suggests that."

"But you must remember that 12 or even 14 members who are still in Russia actively participate in the band's work now, it's a big collective," he added.

No word yet if Vice magazine staffers have plans to get "Pussy-in-Exile" tattoos.
