The ‘Free Pussy Riot’ Movement Appears To Be Actually Working

By / 09.12.12

Well this is an unexpected but pleasant bit of news: noted group sex-loving hard ass Vladimir Putin has apparently given his puppet, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, the go-ahead to signal that Pussy Riot may soon be freed from prison after recently being sentenced for two years behind bars for “hooliganism,” aka making fun of Putin in song in front of a church.

Reports the AP:

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday called for three members of the punk band Pussy Riot to be freed, a sign that the women’s release could be imminent as their case comes up for appeal on Oct. 1.

Medvedev remains subordinate to Putin. But by being the one to call for the women’s release, the prime minister, who has cultivated the image as a more liberal leader, could allow Putin to put the case behind him while not appearing weak.

Medvedev said the women’s appearance and the “hysteria” accompanying them made him sick, but keeping them in prison any longer would be unproductive.

“In my view, a suspended sentence would be sufficient, taking into account the time they have already spent in custody,” he said during a televised meeting with members of his United Russia party.

Meanwhile, no one is happier than Bill Clinton over this development…
