A prison hospital in Siberia. Inside, a member of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot awaits her release. 24-year-old Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and a fellow band member, are serving a two-year sentence for a performance in Moscow's main cathedral that targeted President Vladimir Putin and his ties to the Orthodox church. Tolokonnikova's been given amnesty but her release papers were still not processed on Sunday. Now, her husband thinks she could be freed in a matter of days. (SOUNDBITE) HUSBAND OF JAILED PUSSY RIOT MEMBER NADEZHDA TOLOKONNIKOVA, PETER VERZILOV, SAYING: "I talked to Nadya over the phone today, she says she feels good and everything is fine there. And they also tell her she will be released relatively soon." Residents of this Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk tell Reuters they prefer the Pussy Riot band member remained in jail. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) KRASNOYARSK RESIDENT LYUDMILA, SAYING: "This one should be sent to a mental institution. There is nothing else I can say. She should go to madhouse, she is crazy." (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) KRASNOYARSK RESIDENT IVAN SAYING: "They should be kept there. They have deserved it. Such actions should not be left without punishment." Tolokonnikova's delayed discharge from prison is in contrast to the sudden release of another Kremlin critic in recent days. Former tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky was whisked out of jail just hours after Vladimir Putin signed a decree pardoning him on Friday.
