VOLOGDA March 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday refused to comment on possible amnesty for members of the Pussy Riot punk group.
“That does not depend on me but on appropriate procedures and the applicable Russian legislation,” the president told journalists.
He added that such a decision was in the competence of courts. “I don’t remember if I ever commented on that (the court sentence to Pussy Riot) before. Perhaps, I did but I would prefer to refrain from comments today,” Putin said.
