Pussy Riot's Nadya Tolokonnikova Hospitalized in Siberia
The struggles continue for incarcerated Pussy Riot member Nadya Tolokonnikova, who recently lost touch with the outside world when she was transferred to a Siberian prison. Now, reports indicate that she's been hospitalized once again.

According to Rolling Stone, she's at a hospital in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk. Tolokonnikova's husband Peter Verzilov said that she is at the Tuberculosis Hospital No. 1 (a facility that functions as a standard hospital, in addition to a treatment centre for tuberculosis).

"She was in good condition. She said her conditions were okay," Verzilov told the publication. "She's not sick right now, she's just having procedures and tests related to the hunger strike."

This isn't the first time Tolokonnikova has been hospitalized due to a hunger strike.

Her transfer across Russia took three weeks. "She said conditions and treatment were okay, but that the one thing was she was in very strict isolation," Verzilov revealed. He had been kept in the dark about her wellbeing and whereabouts during her transfer, but he has now been formally updated about her location.

That being said, it's still not confirmed exactly where Tolokonnikova will spend the remainder of her sentence, which runs until March 2014. It's possible that she will remain in hospital until then or be moved to a nearby prison camp.

Tolokonnikova is serving time for her role in a political protest at Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral in early 2012.
