Jailed Pussy Riot member Maria Alyokhina has withdrawn a request for a more lenient sentence at a hearing in Nizhny Novgorod. Alyokhina told the court she has "no moral right" to continue appealing her sentence while her fellow Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova could not appeal her sentence because she has been in a hospital following a hunger strike.
