Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova has 'no regrets' over protest

 

The Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova says she regrets nothing about the band's anti-government performance in a cathedral for which they were convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years in prison.

Tolokonnikova told Germany's Der Spiegel magazine that her conviction with two band mates was Russian President Vladimir Putin's "personal revenge" which served to put a global spotlight on his government.

She said: "I think the bottom line is that the trial against us was important because it showed the true face of Putin's system." AP
