The Pussy Riot that just won’t end

More repercussions from last week’s sentencing of the girls in the Pussy Riot briefly staged “concert” inside Moscow’s main church, the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. It looks as if this will be “The Pussy Riot that just won’t end” as authorities are now looking to arrest more members of the group to be tried in court.

Pussy Riot trial: Tatiana Romanova demonstrated against verdict.

The latest development is that protesters who demonstrated outside the court where the initial trial was held are being prosecuted for illegal demonstrations. Shown in the photo above is Tatiana Romanova, who protested against the guilty verdict and sentence for the group Pussy Riot on the day the sentencing. Ms. Romanova was found guilty of Part 1 of Article 19.3 of the Administrative Code – disobedience to the police and fined 500 rubles.

For those wondering, 500 rubles is rather light, just under $16 dollars.

  1. It is kinda funny that this might be the undoing of Putin power.
    To bad he just does not get it, it is the 21st century, and the Russian good ol’ boy network is coming apart from old age, and getting to relaxed in fat catdom 😉
    Life is change, and as soon as the younger generation realizes it is their government that are the source of the real criminality, well there will be a price to be paid. What can I say? To bad, so sad.
