(Newser) – With Russian cops hot on their heels, two members of Pussy Riot who had thus far escaped conviction have now also escaped the country, reports the Christian Science Monitor. "Two of our members have successfully fled the country! They are recruiting foreign feminists to prepare new actions!," tweeted Pussy Riot Group. "They are in a safe place," says the husband of one of the convicted members. When asked if that meant a country where Russia couldn't seek their extradition, he answered, "Yes, that suggests that."
