Pussy Riot’s member ‘is currently being held in a jail in Minsk’

One of the members of Pussy Riot is currently being held in a jail in Minsk, Belarus, the punk group has claimed.

The group say that Kiryl Masheka, who they describe as their “comrade, friend [and] member of Pussy Riot”, was detained during the protests in Minsk that have been sparked by the disputed outcome of Sunday’s presidential vote (August 9).

In a post yesterday (August 13), Pussy Riot said that Masheka was detained while attending the Minsk protests.
