Recently released Pussy Rioter Yekaterina Samutsevich says that she’s still being monitored by the Russian government. Specifically, she says that the authorities are monitoring collective members’ phones. Via NME:

When asked if she will keep participating in Pussy Riot actions now she’s free, she replied: “Yes, I don’t want to sit home and do nothing. But it’s a more complicated situation for me now. I must act more carefully. They listen to our telephones.”

When asked what conditions were like in prison, she said: “It was like Groundhog Day. We were all under constant surveillance. All our correspondence was read. In terms of other things: food, a shower once a week, everything was bearable. But if they try to take me back I’ll go insane.”

Samutsevich probably isn’t wrong, but she’s not special, either. In Russia, the government taps everyone’s phone.
