Russian activist and former member of the punk group Pussy Riot, Maria Alyokhina, has fled Russia despite police surveillance and it is currently unknown, where she is. TASR took over the report from DPA.

 

Alyokhina is no longer on Russian territory, confirmed her lawyer Danil Berman on Tuesday evening, according to the Russian agency Interfax.

 

According to as of yet unconfirmed information, Alyokhina left her residence in disguise - in a food-delivery courier uniform. Her current location is not known.

 

According to The New York Times, with the help of her friends, she managed to get to the border with Belarus and then to Lithuania.

 

She supported the imprisoned Kremlin opponent

 

The activist has recently come into conflict with Russian law. Last September, she was sentenced to a one-year 'restriction of liberty' in connection with calls for demonstrations in support of the imprisoned Kremlin opponent Alexei Navalny. Based on this verdict, she could not leave her apartment, change her residence or leave Moscow during the night.

 

Since the beginning of this year, she has come under the supervision of security authorities several times due to various allegations.

 

In 2012, Alyokhina and another Pussy Riot member, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, were sentenced to two years in a penal colony for protesting against President Vladimir Putin in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior.
