The Russian punk band and art collective Pussy Riot brought their Revolution tour to Albuquerque in March. One of their original members stopped by the studios at New Mexico PBS to talk about the group’s work opposing war and oppression.

Megan Kamerick asked Maria Alyokhina about the atmosphere for artists, writers and dissidents in Russia right now.
