An article by one of the members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot has been posted on the Free Pussy Riot website. You can read it here.
The band have been in prison for the past five months for performing a protest song entitled "Hail Mary, Expel Putin" in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. It was in protest at the Russian Patriarch (of the Russian Orthodox Church) calling on believers to vote for Putin.
They are charged with hate crimes against Christians.
This article explains their side of the story. It is very good.
