12 Ridiculous Moments From Pussy Riot’s First TV Interview


On Wednesday, the two newly freed members of Pussy Riot, Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina, gave their first joint television interview, in Russian, to Ksenia Sobchak, a socialite who joined the anti-Putin opposition when protests against President Vladimir Putin broke out last year. Sobchak, whose show airs on TV Rain, an independent Russian TV channel, flew to see the women in Krasnoyarsk, where, she said, she found it “impossible to breathe.”

Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina were freed on Monday after serving more than half of their two-year sentences in Russian prisons on charges of hooliganism for performing a “punk prayer” inside a Moscow cathedral. Sobchak, the daughter of Vladimir Putin’s mentor, had some weird questions to ask. Here are the more ridiculous moments:

1. When Sobchak started her interview, with two people just released from jail, by asking, “You got out of prison famous and wealthy. So here’s the question: How much is the Pussy Riot brand worth?”

“You made a huge hellish voyage, with a connection in Moscow, to go where Nadya is. Don’t you think that’s not fair?” Sobchak asked. Krasnoyarsk is a 4.5-hour flight from Moscow.

“I just got on a plane and flew — it’s very simple,” Masha said.
