Pussy Riot band leader escapes Russia disguised as a food delivery driver

The Independent says activist and member of the Russian band Pussy Riot has fled the country disguised as a food courier after criticising Vladimir Putin’s regime.

Maria Alyokhina and her bandmates first came to the attention of Russian authorities in 2012 when they staged a protest inside Moscow Christ the Saviour Cathedral.

They were sentenced to two years in prison for”hooliganism” but the group continued to speak out against the repressive rule of President Putin.

After being released from prison she continued her activism and was in April placed on house arrest to crack down on protesters who were against Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine.

Ordered to spend 21 days in a penal colony, she managed to find a way to escape Moscow police, disguising herself as a food courier in the process.
