The good news: One member of Pussy Riot, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was released from prison today on probation; her lawyers argued earlier this month that because the 30-year-old was kicked out of the cathedral shortly after entering, she was not part of the "aggressive movements" that offended Russia's Orthodox church and resulted in the trio's imprisonment.

The bad news: Samutsevich's bandmates, both of whom are younger than her with small children, will be transferred to a prison colony to serve out their two-year sentences.
