This letter was given to Masha’s friends by one of her lawyers, Nikolay Polozov. It was written back when she didn’t have an opportunity to pass letters to anyone. She was transferred to a more desnely-populated prison cell after.

Second day of pre-trial detention.
My only cell-mate Nina and I sleep on metal beds in outdoor clothes. She sleeps in a fur coat, I sleep in a coat.
It’s so cold in the cell our noses get red and our feet are ice cold, but we are not allowed to get into bed under the covers before the bedtime bell. The holes in the window frames are stuffed in with hygiene pads and bread crumbs, the sky is all orange from the street lamps at night.
I’ve officially stopped my hunger strike so I now drink warm coloured water (tea) and eat dry bread three times a day. The metal bed tables are terrifying, it seems it’s easy to smash your head against the edges. (more…)

Police have opened a criminal probe into the performance of a protest song by notorious female group Pussy Riot at the altar of Moscow’s largest cathedral, the police said on its website on Sunday.
“A criminal case has been opened against the girls who shouted insults at believers and churchmen at the Christ the Savior Cathedral,” the website said.
On Tuesday, four members of Pussy Riot, clad in bright balaclavas, performed an acapella version of what they said was a “punk prayer” entitled “Holy Sh*t.” The lyrics included lines such as “Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin, chase Putin out!”
The punk protest at the Christ the Savior Cathedral came with less than a week to go before presidential elections in which Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will seek to return to the Kremlin for a third term. Although Putin is widely expected to triumph at the March 4 polls, his bid comes amid the largest show of dissent since he first came to power in 2000.
The group was briefly detained after their performance, which took place in the presence of several worshippers. And on Wednesday, the rector of an Orthodox school in Moscow asked state prosecutors to bring charges of inciting religious hatred against the group. The charge carries a maximum jail term of three years.
Pussy Riot first hit the headlines in January, when they raced through a musical diatribe against Putin on a snowy Red Square, calling for “Revolt in Russia!” and chanting “Putin’s got scared” before being detained by police.
Moscow police have detained two more members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot as part of a criminal probe launched after the group stormed the altar of Moscow’s largest cathedral and performed a protest song, a police spokesperson said on Sunday.
Last week, five women from the band, clad in bright balaclavas, performed an acapella version of what they said was a “punk prayer” entitled “Holy Sh*t.” The lyrics included lines such as “Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin, chase Putin out!”
The punk protest at the Christ the Savior Cathedral came less than a week before Sunday’s presidential elections, in which Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is seeking the Kremlin post for a third term.
The activists escaped after the performance. However, police opened a criminal case against them, saying they had “shouted insults at believers and churchmen at the Christ the Savior Cathedral.”
As part of the probe, three women and a man were detained on Saturday and another two women were detained on Sunday. They may face up to seven years in prison on charges of hooliganism.
“They are suspected of…gross violation of public order and religious hatred,” police said.
