Мария Алехина сбежала из России

Maria Alyokhina, a member of the infamous Pussy Riot project, escaped from house arrest in the form of a Delivery Club courier.

Alyokhina fled Russia

A so-called ‘sanitary case’ was initiated against Alekhina. The girl called for participation in protests during the Covid-19 epidemic when there were restrictions on mass events in Moscow.

Alyokhina was sentenced to 1 year of restriction of liberty and subjected to house arrest.

On April 8, Alyokhina cut off the tracking bracelet installed by the Federal Penitentiary Service. This is a malicious violation of the regime and Alyokhina threatened to replace the suspended sentence with a real one.

Thanks to the efforts of her friend the artist Ragnar Kjartansson, Alekhina managed to obtain a visa from one of the European states.

The girl changed into the uniform of a Delivery Club courier, and her friend took her to the Belarusian border, which Alyokhina crossed with a Russian passport.

A few days later, and only on the third attempt, Alyokhina managed to get to Lithuania, where she is now.

Feminist punk band Pussy Riot is known for its controversial performances and radical anti-Putin stance. The most famous performance of the band Pussy Riot was the performance of the composition “Mother of God, Drive Putin Away” in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow.
After that, the law “On the Protection of the Feelings of Believers” was adopted in Russia.
