Pussy Riot freed | Amnesty International UK

It's great news that the two remaining member of Pussy Riot behind bars, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, have been freed by Russian authorities. They spent nearly two years in prison and throughout that time tens of thousands of you have taken action. Scroll through the timeline below to see how their case developed and what you did to help get them freed. See more ways your support has made a difference this year
