Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton tweeted a picture Friday of her posing with members of the anti-Vladimir Putin punk rock group Pussy Riot.

Clinton met with the women during the "Women in the World Summit" in New York.

The group has emerged as chief opponents of Putin, and three members were jailed in 2012 after an anti-Putin performance at a church.

The tweet has been re-tweeted almost 10,000 times.
