Pussy Riot members were detained after the action to support Sentsov in Yakutsk

Members of Pussy Riot Maria Alekhina and Olga Borisova were detained near the correctional colony No.1 after the action to support illegally sentenced in Russia, the Ukrainian Oleg Sentsov. ‘Mediazona’ reports about it.

It’s noted that law enforcement have transferred Alekhina and Borisova in the police department. They detained on the suspicion in the ‘commission of an administrative offense’, that is, the conduct of an unauthorized action.

Earlier on her Facebook page Alekhina wrote about holding an action:

‘Yakutsk, Republic of Sakha, a bridge across Lake Sisary. There is CC-1 in twenty minutes, where Oleg Sentsov is. 7.5 kilometers. We made an action. With the help of a linen cloth and a pink can, an extension was made and placed on the bridge in such a way that it could be seen by passers-by and residents of houses opposite. Ukrainian director Oleg Sentsov, coming through the tortures during the investigation, was sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment. The case of Sentsov and Kolchenko is the one of the main and key political affairs in the history of our country. Freedom!’.
