MOSCOW - The defense lawyer for Pussy Riot singer Yekaterina Samutsevich, who has been freed from custody, has denied reports there is a split within the punk group.

"They are a close-knit team, as before. Look how the girls, who remained in custody, congratulated Katya [Samutsevich]. They were pleased at hearing the news," Irina Khrunova told reporters.

"Katya is happy, too. Imagine how a person must be feeling after being released from prison," she said.

Khrunova said her client will observe all restrictions imposed on her by the court. "She will not change her place of residence and she will regularly report to the police," Khrunova said.
