Feminist punk group members Olga Borisova and Maria Alyokhina were held for several hours after protesting against the imprisonment of Ukrainian film-maker Sentsov

Two members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, known for their vociferous protests against the Russian establishment, were briefly detained on Monday by police in Yakutsk in eastern Siberia.

Maria Alyokhina and Olga Borisova were arrested following a protest they made against the imprisonment of film-maker Oleg Sentsov – the pair unfurled a “Free Sentsov” banner on a road bridge, along with plumes of coloured smoke. They were held in a police station, then faced a court hearing for holding an unauthorised protest.
