Pussy Riot -aktivisti Masha Aljohina pakeni Venäjältä kuriiriksi naamioituneena. “I think this country no longer has the right to exist”

Masha Aljohina, yksi Pussy Riotin aktivisteista ja laulajista, onnistui pakenemaan Venäjältä saatuaan tiedon, että hänet tuomittiin kotiarestiin muutettavaksi 21 päivän vankeusrangaistukseen rangaistussiirtokunnassa.

According to the New York Times, the Russian managed to escape from his friend’s house in Moscow, disguised as a food delivery courier. To avoid discovery, Aljohina left her cell phone behind. However, the 33-year-old activist, whose passport was confiscated by Russian authorities, was placed on the country’s “wanted” list.

Masha Aljohina managed to leave Russia on the other side of the Belarusian border when her Icelandic friend Ragnar Kjartansson, an artist who has already collaborated with Americans The National, persuaded a European Union country to provide her with a document granting equivalent citizenship to one of its 27 member states. So he left Russia and is currently in Lithuania.

“I still don’t understand what I did. It looks like a spy novel,” he told the New York Times, saying that after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, he has become more critical of President Putin’s regime. “I don’t think Russia has a right to exist anymore. In the past, there were doubts about how united the country is, what kind of values ​​unite it and where it’s going. But I think those issues now aren’t even rising.”

Moskovan katedraalissa vuonna 2012 tapahtuneen Pussy Riotin “intervention” jälkeen, joka tuotti hänelle kahden vuoden vankeusrangaistuksen, Masha Aljohina jatkoi Venäjän presidentin kritisoimista, koska hänet on pidätetty kuusi kertaa viime kesästä lähtien. “If your heart is free, it doesn’t matter where you are,” he says now.

Pussy Riotilla on konsertteja Casa da Músicassa Portossa 8. kesäkuuta ja Capitóliossa Lissabonissa 9. kesäkuuta.
