Two more Pussy Riot members arrested over rainbow flag protests — Meduza

OVD-Info and Avtozak Live have reported the arrest of two more Pussy Riot activists in connection with a LGBTQ rights protest action, timed to coincide with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s birthday last Wednesday.

According to OVD-Info, Pussy Riot member Temuuzhin Sambuudavaagiyn (Tim Bestsvet) was arrested near the Moscow City Court building on Tuesday October 13. He was taken to a police station in Kitay Gorod, where he was written up for an administrative violation. Police officials plan to keep Sambuudavaagiyn in custody pending trial, which will presumably take place on Wednesday, says Apologia Protesta lawyer Mansur Gilmanov.
