Berlin: Jailed Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova says she regrets nothing about the band`s anti-government performance in a cathedral that got them convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years behind bars.

Tolokonnikova told Germany`s Der Spiegel magazine in an interview released today that her conviction with her two band mates were Russian President Vladimir "Putin`s personal revenge" which served to put a global spotlight on his government.

She says, "I think the bottom line is that the trial against us was important because it showed the true face of Putin`s system."
Der Spiegel said the performer`s answers to the magazine`s questions were provided through her lawyer, who is allowed to visit her in prison.
She says Pussy Riot`s goal remains "a revolution in Russia."
