NIZHNY NOVGOROD, August 7 (Itar-Tass) - Member of the punk band Pussy Riot Maria Alyokhina has been transferred from a detention center in Nizhny Novgorod to a penal colony in Nizhny Novgorod Region, press secretary of the regional department of the Federal Penitentiary Service (FSIN) Nina Frolova told Itar-Tass.
