One of the three jailed Pussy Riot members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, has apologized to the believers. The punk-band member said their performance did not mean to insult anyone. During the definitive hearing in the Khamovniki court on Monday she said the so-called punk-prayer the girls are being prosecuted for was an ‘ethical mistake’.
The women face up to 7 years in prison for an unsanctioned performance in February in which they entered Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral, ascended the altar and performed a song critical of the church and the government.
A criminal case was opened in March. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Yekaterina Samutsevich and Maria Alyokhina have been kept in detention since.
