Both jailed members of cause celebre Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been released from prison under an amnesty law, according to reports.
Nadezhda Tolokonnikova walked free from a prison hospital in Siberia, while band-mate Maria Alyokhina was cut loose earlier in Nizhny Novgorod.
Both have dismissed the amnesty as a PR stunt ahead of February's Winter Olympics in Russia, but they are nonetheless free for the first time in 14 months.
The women were jailed in August 2012 after performing a protest song in Moscow's main cathedral. The act was seen as blasphemous by many Russians.
However, their conviction for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" was criticized by rights groups, anti-Putin activists and foreign governments.
Their sentences were due to end in March 2014.
