Some Russian people were not happy about Putin being re-elected. As a way to protest, Russian feminist collective Pussy Riot performed impromptu punk-rock concerts around Moscow while wearing colored masks and tight dresses. Last February, they played a punk song inside an orthodox Cathedral with lines like ‘Holy Mother, Blessed Virgin’ to ‘chase Putin out’. Political punk at its best! But the three members of the crew were soon arrested and charged with hooliganism, for which they face seven years in prison. Some call their act blasphemous, while other (such as Amnesty International) stand up for them. What do you think?
