Russia Bans Pussy Riot Video

Russia Bans Pussy Riot Video

Footage of feminist rockers Pussy Riot’s irreverent protest against President Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s main cathedral last year has been banned in Russia and must be removed from the country’s Internet, the Associated Press reports.

Russia Bans Pussy Riot Video

Moscow City Court on Wednesday rejected band member Yekaterina Samutsevich’s appeal of a lower court’s ruling in November, meaning that its ban of the video now takes effect.

Samutsevich said the decision amounted to censorship and vowed to fight on.

Pussy Riot shot to global fame last year after three band members, including Samutsevich, were convicted in August on charges of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” for their “punk prayer” against Putin’s return to the presidency.
