Nadezhda Tolokonnikova celebrates her 24th birthday today in Siberia. For the last 2 weeks, her whereabouts have been unknown, even to her family. After complaining about her conditions in prison, she went on a hunger strike and requested a transfer. In the process, reporting stopped, and not even her family was notified. In the wee hours of this morning, her 24th birthday, word was received by her husband that she was not lost in the infamous prison transit system of Russia. She has arrived at prison PC-50, in Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, 2000 miles away from Moscow.
