MOSCOW -- Two members of the punk band Pussy Riot have fled Russia to avoid prosecution for a protest against Vladimir Putin that sent three of their band mates to prison, the group said Sunday.

Five members of the feminist group took part in a provocative performance inside Moscow's main cathedral in February to protest the Russian leader's rule and his cozy relationship with the Orthodox Church. The women wore their trademark garishly colored balaclavas, which made it difficult for police to identify them, and only three were arrested.

After a controversial trial that highlighted Putin's crackdown on dissent since he began a third presidential term in May, the three band members were convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years in prison on Aug. 17. Days later, Moscow police said they were searching for the other band members, an apparent warning to the group to stop its anti-Putin protests.

Even as the judge was reading the verdict in a Moscow courtroom, one of the band members who had escaped arrest played Pussy Riot's latest song, "Putin sets the fires of revolutions," from the balcony of an apartment building across the street.

Pussy Riot tweeted on Sunday that the two activists had fled Russia and are "recruiting foreign feminists to prepare new protest actions." No mention was made of where they went.

At least 12 other members of the group remain in Russia, another message on Twitter said.

A free ticket to the West, dinner at Madonna's digs and a dozen recording contracts. Wow! Couldn't have worked out better if they'd planned it from the getgo. ;-)

The Ukrainian Femen girls are really pretty.

Much better than Finnish girls I have seen.

A lot of Finns have zipper eyes & buck teeth like Gooks do.

We don`t need that mess in Russia.
Lett them go the filthy west, where people hate religion, love sodomits and are fond of blacks and other subhuman beings. Russia is better off without these scumbags.

You are not Finnish though? Aren't you British & Pesky's other retard account?

English girls often do have big boobs just because English girls are so big & fat.

Like this British girl.

Her thigh's are bigger than most women's waste big British beasts.

That is pretty funny coming from an Italian.

Because Italians seem to be one of the most racist & homophobic in the West (Non Ex Soviet Bloc countries)

Although Italians don't seem to be as racist or homophobic as Russians though.
