STORY: Madonna, in Moscow ahead of an upcoming concert, said on Monday (August 6) a jail sentence for the three women from the anti-Putin Pussy Riot band would be a tragedy. Weighing into a debate surrounding the trial of Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, Madonna added her voice to a number of other Western musicians, bolstering accusations by President Vladimir Putin's foes that the legal proceedings are politically motivated and a part of a wider crackdown on dissent.
