Police in Moscow have placed Dr. Anastasia Vasilyeva of the Alliance of Doctors and Maria Alekhina of the Pussy Riot punk collective under house arrest as protests continue against Vladimir Putin’s regime. Both musicians are supporters of the jailed Alexei Navalny.

We reported on Friday that Dr Vasilyeva greeted the police in her apartment with an impromptu Beethoven recital. Watch here.
