Pussy Riot – Punk Prayer

The three young Russian female punkers that are Pussy Riot are in jail for “hooliganism,” committed while criticizing President Vladimir Putin for his heavy hand in ruling Russia for the past decade. The video is them in a flash mob situation, storming into and then protesting in a Moscow cathedral. There, they stated and sort of sang, “Virgin Mary, Mother of God, help us chase Putin away.”

Offence was caused to Orthodox Russian Christians, the leadership of which denomination has been reportedly supportive of Putin. The band members have since started a hunger strike in prison.
