Pussy Riot’s Nadezhda Tolokonnikova is in Siberian Hospital, Not Penal Colony

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova is at a hospital in the Siberian region of Krasnoyarsk, her husband told Rolling Stone today.

After more than three weeks of no contact, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova finally spoke to his wife who is in Krasnoyarsk’s Tuberculosis Hospital No. 1. Tolokonnikova does not have tuberculosis.

“She was in good condition. She said her conditions were OK,” Verzilov told Rolling Stone. “She’s not sick right now, she’s just having procedures and tests related to the hunger strike.”

Tolokonnikova told her husband that during the past three-plus weeks that she’s been out of sight, she wasn kept from having contact with the outside world.

“She said conditions and treatment were OK,” Verzilov said, “but that the one thing was she was in very strict isolation.”

Russian authorities have not revealed where Tolokonnikova will serve the remainder of her sentence, although Verzilov told Rolling Stone he had been told that she might remain at the hospital.
