Russia: Pussy Riot’s Alyokhina appealing to Supreme Court

The defense of a Pussy Riot member Maria Alyokhina, who was convicted last year of hooliganism for singing a song against President Vladimir Putin, will file a supervisory appeal against her sentence with the Supreme Court, her lawyer said.

The appeal from the feminist punk rocker follows a similar application with the same court by another band member, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, which was supported by Russia’s Human Rights Commissioner Vladimir Lukin.
