Image A new update on the whereabouts and condition of Pussy Riot's Nadezhda Tolokonnikova today: Tolokonnikova is currently at Tuberculosis Hospital No 1 in Krasnoyarsk, in western Siberia, undergoing tests for "various conditions" -- though her husband Pytor Verzilov notes to BBC that she does not have tuberculosis. Verzilov told BBC he had spoken to his wife for the first time since she initially went missing on Oct. 21:

Mr Verzilov said his wife had told him that conditions at the hospital were much better than at the penal colony in Mordovia, where she had been held previously, and that she had not been beaten during the 26 days she was missing.

Russian prison authorities issued a statement confirming that "convict Tolokonnikova has arrived to the institution of the Russian prison service in the Krasnoyarsk region".

The Huffington Post reported earlier this month that Tolokonnikova had been transported to Siberia. Both Tolokonnikova and fellow Pussy Riot member Maria Alyokhina are due to be released from prison in March 2014 after serving a two-year sentence for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred."
