The duo stars of Pussy Riot hooked up with Hillary Clinton recently. This came about amidst leniency shown by Vladimir Putin to the bold girls.

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, the twosome from Pussy Riot, just had their prison sentences waved aside by Russia. They have made appearances in the United States especially at the Women in the World Summit. 

Their reputation is one of being punk rockers and extreme rebels with a cause. The charges against them consisted of stirring up religious animosity via their punk prayer. 

But now those charges have been dropped and they are free. The anti-Putin chants the girls took part in, when they entered a church and began the whole inflammatory act got them into trouble with Russian law. 

But Putin is a pretty clever guy. Instead of reacting to the whole situation, he decided to gain sympathy for the Sochi Olympics and so he gave them a pardon. 

However, the laxity is for the religious hatred act and not for the hooliganism they caused. The hooliganism sentence may extend to seven years.  

Meanwhile, the two met Hillary Clinton at the summit. Clinton took the opportunity to have her picture taken with them. She said that it was such a delight to meet two brave and strong girls who will not have their voices silenced in Russia. 

The punk rockers are not fools and they can see through the cunning Putin’s ruse. He is just being good to them in order to better his atrocious image in the world community. 

In an interview, the two girls spoke of how they were given such oppressive treatment at the hands of the repressive government forces in Russia. “When we got released, we didn’t have any illusions at all that Putin’s regime became more liberal,” said Tolokonnikova.  

They said that they wanted Russia to be a free country. And they also thanked the ordinary people who had always taken their side. Where would they have been without the support of these kindred souls?
