Pussy Riot’s Nadezhda Tolokonnikova ended her nine day hunger strike today, October 1, 2012, according to her husband, Pyotr Verzilov, who also said that she will restart it if she is not transferred to another prison.

Verzilov told the Associated Press that Tolokonnikova was in stable condition. Her lawyer, Irina Khrunova, told AP that the young woman’s “deteriorating health” was the main reason she stopped her hunger strike.
