Girl is free again - level 1

03-01-2014 06:00

Pussy Riot is a band. There are only women in this band. They are from Russia. They don’t like the Russian President.

This band sings in a church. This is vandalism. The song criticises the President. Three girls go to prison. One girl must be there for two years.

This girl is lucky. She is not in prison for two years. She goes home early. She is free but she is not happy. She says that she is free because it is good for the President.

Difficult words: vandalism (when you break things), criticise (say that you don’t like something/somebody).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
