Two members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot say they may run for seats in this year's election for the Moscow city parliament. Nadia Tolokonnikov, appearing alongside fellow band member Maria Alekhina at an event on the sidelines of the Berlin film festival Monday, said the move into politics "is worth a try." Tolokonnikov and Alekhina were released in December after nearly two years in jail. They say third Pussy Riot member Yekaterina Samutsevich, who was released in October 2012, won't be involved in the work of their human rights organization Zone of Law, which will campaign on behalf of prisoners.
