Nadezhda Tolokonnikova celebrates her 24th birthday today in Siberia. For the last 2 weeks, her whereabouts have been unknown, even to her family. After complaining about her conditions in prison, she went on a hunger strike and requested a transfer. In the process, reporting stopped, and not even her family was notified. In the wee hours of this morning, her 24th birthday, word was received by her husband that she was not lost in the infamous prison transit system of Russia. She has arrived at prison PC-50, in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, 2000 miles away from Moscow.

"We" are encircling Russia with nuclear tipped missiles. Putin doesn't go along with The New
World Order, you see.

what is your point? 07.Nov.2013 11:01


So since our government has done bad things, that someone absolves Russia of their wrongs?
You seriously have brought nothing to the conversation. Nothing. Except for some half-assed and bizarre "blame the U.S." mentality.

"We are encircling Russia with nuclear tipped missles"

yes, I am sure that is why they are cracking down on Nadya Tolokonnikova. Damn you america!!!
