Pussy Riot runs free

This is wonderful news, even if it's just a PR stunt by Putin (which is exactly what it is). He's trying to save his precious anti-gay Olympics. Whatever, they're out!
"Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova, 24, and Maria Alekhina, 25, were released from prison, three months before their scheduled release..."
You may cheer now. And now here's Putin's pathetic remark:
In a news conference, President Vladimir Putin expressed no regret for the Pussy Riot members. "I was not sorry that they ended up behind bars," he said. "I was sorry that they were engaged in such disgraceful behaviour, which in my view was degrading to the dignity of women."
Yeah, right. Stay classy, Vladdy, but it won't work. You joined forces with a filthy, authoritarian Christian sect and invented a "religious crime" to punish these women. But really, you punished them because they were protesting against you. Religion, my ass.

It's particularly disgusting that when talking about imprisoning these young women, one of whom has young children, you used the phrase "dignity of women". Puti, you lost the right to talk like that a long time ago. You're a lowlife pig who knows nothing of dignity.

Can't wait to see what you do at the Olympics. Dance, Vladdy. Amuse us. This is going to be fun.

To me Putin is a conundrum. I don't agree with his policies but I chuckle how he always manages to get under the skin of everyone. He will do anything to gain publicity or wheedle himself into the front of the line. I really don't think he gives a damn about what the rest of the world thinks.
