One Member Freed

A Moscow court on Wednesday freed one of the convicted women from the punk band Pussy Riot Yekaterina Samutsevich but upheld two-year jail terms for the other two.

Earlier the trio spoke defiantly at the appeal hearing, saying their protest song was political and not anti-Church.

Samutsevich said the court's decision to release her with a suspended sentence was a big surprise, and she had "mixed feelings" about being free after more than six months in custody. "Of course I am very happy to be out and to be free, but I'm very upset that Nadezhda and Maria are still incarcerated," she said.

In an exclusive interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour, Samutsevich said the punk rock band still has work to do in opposing Putin. "We are not finished, nor are we going to end our political protest," she said.

i find it rather pointless to raise new buildings without upgrading the old ones first.
Just my 2 cents.
