Two Pussy Rioters Flee Russia

Breaking:  friends say two of the other band members, who have been IDed only with pseudonyms, have fled Russia to avoid arrest.
The band’s Twitter feed did not say where the two women had fled, or whether they had received political asylum after the conviction and jailing of three of their bandmates this month drew condemnation from many foreign governments and celebrities.
These other two members of the band have never been publicly identified by the police, and they have been referred to only by the nicknames Balaclava and Serafima.
“Two members have left the country because they are wanted,” the Twitter post said. “They are recruiting foreign feminists for new protest actions.”
