(Newser) – Nadezhda Tolokonnikova may be cooling her heels in a Russian prison for the next two years, but the member of Pussy Riot is still bashing Vladimir Putin and says she has no regrets, if only because "the trial against us was important because it showed the true face of Putin's system." Tolokonnikova gave an interview to Der Spiegel via questions her lawyer carried to her in prison, notes the AP. She called the verdict "Putin's personal revenge," and said the band's main objective is "a revolution in Russia."
