Pussy Riot‘s Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina have started their own independent news outlet, MediaZona. The media service will monitor Russian courts, prisons and law enforcement.

Explains Tolokonnikova:“Since our release from prison 6 months ago we’ve felt that Russian media are no longer able to cover what is going on. Because of the heavy censorship by authorities there is no space for anything in the media that criticizes Putin’s policies and tracks human rights abuses by Russian courts and law enforcement. Courts, prisons, arrests, convictions, riots in facilities, political criminal cases, crimes by law enforcement officials - our new media outlet will try to cover it all.”
