"They put us in a tiny room. There was an inspector present at all time as she was actually physically sitting between us," Gessen says.

Pussy Riot, according to Gessen, continues to hone in on issues central to Russian President Vladimir Putin's grip on power.

"They are, I think, possibly the most incisive political commentators in Russia today. And I say this in all seriousness," Gessen says.

Below is the new video that Pussy Riot has just released, its first in the last year.
