“We have discussed this situation with our clients, who like us believe that the young women have made sufficient apologies at the trial, having said everything they deemed necessary,” Pussy Riot lawyer Nikolai Polozov told Interfax on Sunday.

Last Friday the band’s lawyers were contacted by authors of the Man and the Law television program, who suggested that the young women’s lawyers make a public on-air apology on September 8, he said.

“Given the fact that in the last program about Pussy Riot our clients were portrayed unfavorably, we told the television program that we are ready to take part in the program provided that we agree on a script plan, in which case the program will have to pay us a fine if there is any deviation from the plan,” Polozov said.
