Pussy Riot's Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina Attacked with Paint in Russia
The incarcerated members of Pussy Riot were freed late last year, but Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina have had a rough time since being released from prison. They were arrested in Sochi shortly before being whipped by security officials during a protest performance, and then arrested yet again. Now, there's another new video showing the two women being attacked.

The women were confronted by a group of men while in a McDonald's restaurant in the city of Nizhny Novgorod early this morning (March 6). The men poured garbage and green paint on them while shouting at them. The caption on YouTube says that pepper spray was also used.

Watch video of the incident below. The whole thing is in Russian, so we're not sure exactly what's being said, but the Guardian reports that the men told them to "[Go] to America."

While being sprayed with paint, Tolokonnikova said, "It hurts! Why are you doing this? You don't have the right to hurt me. Please don't do that to anyone anymore."

Alyokhina said she suffered head injuries while Tolokonnikova incurred chemical burns. The pair were apparently on their way to the prison where Alyokhina served her term.

Police have said they are looking into the incident, while Tolokonnikova has blamed local authorities for the attack.
