Muscovites react to news of the release of Pussy Riot members

Two members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, have been freed from jail early as part of an amnesty.

They were jailed in 2012 after singing a protest song in a Moscow cathedral.

A third Pussy Riot protester, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was also jailed, but was released on appeal in October 2012.

People on the streets of Moscow have been reacting to the news.
