RUSSIA : Mordovia Court Denies Parole For Jailed Pussy Rioter 'Nadia.'
A Mordovia judge refused to parole former Pussy Rioter Nadezhda 'Nadia' Tolokonnikova, 23...from her 2-year sentence for hooliganism and 'religious hatred.'
The female judge agreed with prison officials that she hadn't sufficiently repented for her brief anti-Putin protest song in Moscow's Russian Orthodox cathedral.
Officials also say they reprimanded her in the remote prison...for her refusal to participate in a prison camp beauty contest...and failing to greet a guard when she was sick.
She and another band member have already served 6 months in prison.
While imprisoned under harsh conditions...Nadia has complained of severe headaches.
