Just moments earlier, Nadya Tolokonnikova, Masha Alyokhina, and a handful of other members headed out of a cafe toward the Sochi seaport, where they prepared to perform. As they were putting on their neon ski masks, about a dozen Cossacks descended on the group, thrashing them with whips, throwing them to the ground, and kicking them as police officers stood by. The police allowed the mini-pogrom to continue for about ten minutes. Russia has fielded hundreds of Cossacks in Sochi for the Olympics to help the police maintain public order. This state-supported militia force, with its signature fur hats and riding boots, can be seen all throughout the Olympic host city during the Winter Games. The incident took place against a backdrop of arrests and detentions of opponents of the Russian authorities and the Olympics. These critics have alleged that massive corruption and environmental damage took place during preparations for Sochi 2014. Pussy Riot said that they came to the city to record a protest song to draw attention to the detention of Yevgeny Vitishko, an environmentalist. Vitishko was recently sentenced to three years in prison for violating the terms of a suspended sentence he received for painting graffiti on the fence of the local governor's residence, which was built in a national forest. Amnesty International maintains that Vitishko's conviction was politically motivated, and considers him a prisoner of conscience. Pussy Riot finally accomplished what the group had come to Sochi to do, recording their first protest song since being released from prison: "Putin Will Teach You to Love the Motherland." In an interview with Vice News reporter Simon Ostrovsky, Tolokonnikova responded to detractors who claim that she and Alyokhina are no longer true members of the protest group by saying, "Anyone can become a member of Pussy Riot, including any one of you. The only thing you have to do is be passionate about politics, make up a song, record that song, find a place, put on a mask and perform."

Russian punk group Pussy Riot is attacked by Cossack militia as they try to perform under a sign for the Sochi Olympics. Cossack militia attacked the Pussy Riot punk group with horsewhips on Wednesday as the group staged an impromptu performance under a sign advertising the Sochi Olympics. Six group members — five women and one man — donned their signature ski masks and were pulling out a guitar and microphone when at least 10 Cossacks and other security officials moved in. One guard appeared to use pepper spray, another whipped several group members while others ripped off their masks and threw the guitar in a rubbish bin. Police arrived and questioned witnesses, but no one was arrested. The Cossacks violently pulled masks from women's heads, beating group member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova with a whip as she lay on the ground. The incident lasted less than three minutes and one Pussy Riot member, a man wearing a bright yellow tank top, was left with blood on his face, saying he had been pushed to the ground. Pussy Riot, a performance-art collective involving a loose membership of feminists who edit their actions into music videos, has become an international flashpoint for those who contend Putin's government has exceeded its authority, particularly restricting human and gay rights. The group gained international attention in 2012 after barging into Moscow's main cathedral and performing a "punk prayer" in which they entreated the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Putin, who was on the verge of returning to the Russian presidency for a third term. Two members of the group, Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, were sentenced to two years in prison, but were released in December under an amnesty bill seen as a Kremlin effort to assuage critics before the Olympics.

Varya, a teacher of literature, having given up the request of a neighbor to replace her on the market in a tent with clothes and tights, learns from a random customer Galya, her classmate and sometime best friend. But it seems that only she feels the joy of the meeting: Galya condescendingly looks at the schoolmate, comparing her sleek look with the simplicity of Vari’s appearance. At parting, Galya wanted to throw away a piece of paper with Vari's phone, but under the gaze of her friend she did not dare to do it. On their common birthday, it turns out that Galya, for all her material well-being (she is the mistress of a beauty salon), is left alone: her patron lover has a daughter who is ill, and she didn’t call other guests. Remembering the invitation of Vari, Galya, having found a note with the phone in Varin’s purse, begs for that visit. And gets into a warm family home, where there is a place for guests and relatives. Where they do not scold children for an occasional prank, where love and mutual understanding reign. Yes, it turns out that Vari's husband is almost a beautiful handsome Egor. Having learned that Egor, after the cuts, is looking for a permanent job, Galya hires him as a personal chauffeur. And, using the opportunity, tries to seduce him. But Egor ignores her efforts. Galya is offended by hiring gangsters who rob and beat Yegor. ... Galya does not immediately realize what she has done. Not immediately and Varya finds the strength to forgive a classmate. But she does not know how to respond with evil to evil, her kind soul does not accept it. And on the day of the 10-year-old, pink wedding, Varya and Egor invite us to take a sailing boat trip, which turned out to be near the unfortunate Galya ...

400 people took part in a 'Naked Run for Freedom' in the Netherlands on Friday (July 26), timed to coincide with the parole hearing of a member of Russian punk band "Pussy Riot". Amnesty International were among the organisers of the event they said was in support of freedom of expression in Russia. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 23, along with two other members of the band, was convicted of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred in August for bursting into a Russian Orthodox cathedral in Moscow and belting out a "punk prayer" asking the Virgin Mary to rid Russia of President Vladimir Putin. Hundreds of people took part in the naked run of two laps of a muddy motocross track in a comparatively sparsely-populated part of the country close to German border where they were cheered by thousands of supporters. "That was the most amazing thing I ever did!" said one runner, 24-year-old Nienke after the race which took place on the fringes of the annual Black Cross festival. Tolokonnikova lost her court battle to secure early release on Friday, the second blow in three days for Pussy Riot. Maria Alyokhina, another band member serving a two-year sentence, had a similar attempt quashed in court on Wednesday. The third Pussy Riot member, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was freed last October when a judge suspended her sentence on appeal.

The women were chanting in Russian: "Putin will teach you to love the Motherland" when the Cossacks started to brutally disperse them.

Police arrived and questioned witnesses, but no one was arrested. The Cossacks violently pulled masks from women's heads, beating group member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova with a whip as she lay on the ground. The incident lasted less than three minutes and one Pussy Riot member, a man wearing a bright yellow vest, was left with blood on his face, saying he had been pushed to the ground. Pussy Riot, a performance-art collective involving a loose membership of feminists who edit their actions into music videos, has become an international flashpoint for those who contend that Russian President Vladimir Putin's government has exceeded its authority, particularly restricting human rights, particularly for the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender)community. The group gained international attention in 2012 after barging into Moscow's main cathedral and performing a "punk prayer" in which they entreated the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Putin, who was on the verge of returning to the Russian presidency for a third term. Two members of the group, Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, were sentenced to two years in prison, but were released in December under an amnesty bill seen as a Kremlin effort to assuage critics before the Olympics. On Tuesday, two members of the group were briefly detained in Sochi, but not arrested. The group has called for a boycott of the Sochi Olympics and has insisted that any world leader coming to Sochi would be giving tacit approval of Putin's heavy-handed policies. The Cossacks have been used since last year as an auxiliary police force to patrol the streets in the Krasnodar province, which includes the Winter Olympic host city.

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova are being sent to Russian 'prison hell' in Mordovia and Perm, wherever that is. As if the two year sentence wasn't bad enough, they're being separated from each other and their families to endure what is accounted as a very cold, grim two years in the middle of medieval nowhere. So whilst we whine over our 1st world issues like using our last skip on Pandora, these women are reminding us that we should take our food court gripe down a notch.

Subscribe to ITN News: http://bit.ly/1bmWO8h Members of the girl band Pussy Riot were violently attacked by Russia's voluntary police, the Cossacks, in Sochi on Wednesday while they were filming a new music video. The girl band are famous for their outspoken campaigning for human rights in Russia. Members of the voluntary Cossack police force, who are in Sochi to keep the peace, used whips, brute force and tear gas against the band and other protesters. President Vladimir Putin has been keen for the Sochi Olympic Games to be a success but Russia has come under increasing pressure from the international community as evidence of human rights violations have come to light. Pussy Riot band members were jailed in February 2012, accused of hooliganism and religious hatred but they were released from prison last December in an amnesty ahead of the Sochi games.

In 2012, the members of Pussy Riot stormed into a Moscow cathedral, defaming the government, while mocking the beliefs of churchgoers with vulgarity and disruptive behaviour. They received a 2 year sentence in the process, but were released early in 2013 – only to cause a scene at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Having completed their task, they went on to CNN to interview about their ordeal. Any person understands, that if they were free to do this (the CNN interview took place in their home, in Russia) – then their allegations of not living in a free country, is contrary to logic.

Pussy Riot Group Attacked by Russian Guards at SOCHI SOCHI, Russia — Members of the performance-art group Pussy Riot were attacked on a public plaza Wednesday by Cossacks brandishing whips and discharging pepper spray, a day after police picked them up and held them for nearly four hours without charges. An Associated Press video showed the Cossacks advancing on the five women and one man with whips, knocking them down and striking them. The performers had just been shown gathering quickly at an outdoor plaza in Sochi, about 20 miles from the Olympic Park, taking off coats, putting on their ski masks and preparing to perform when the Cossacks attacked. The Cossacks roughly pulled off the masks and flicked their whips at the group. When the group escaped they tweeted what had happened, providing details and photos. They had been preparing to make a video of a new protest song, "Putin will teach you how to love your Motherland," when the Cossacks appeared and set upon them. Pussy Riot has a storied and controversial history in Russia. Two members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, were arrested after they took part in a protest in February 2012. They, along with other members of the group, mounted the altar of Moscow's main Orthodox cathedral and sang a protest song criticizing President Vladimir Putin and his close ties to the Russian Orthodox Church. Both women served nearly two years in prison before their December release. Alyokhina tweeted a photo Wednesday of a young man who had joined the five women for the performance — usually they perform as a feminist collective. He had a bloodied face, an injury Alyokhina said was suffered in the attack. She posted another photo of a woman with red marks on her chest. Tolokonnikova, who was knocked to the ground and hit with a whip, tweeted that her husband, Pyotr Verzilov, had been taken to the hospital, unable to see because of the pepper spray. And David Khakim, a Sochi environmental activist, tweeted that police detained one man for questioning but let the others go.

The Cossacks, descended from czarist-era horsemen who patrolled the borders of the Russian empire, are remembered historically for leading pogroms against Jews. Today they are socially conservative and ardent supporters of the Russian Orthodox Church. Recently, they have been revived as a sort of volunteer citizen patrol, and about 800 of them have supplemented the police providing security for the Winter Games here. On patrol, they often wear military-style jackets and high lambskin hats. Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina, freed from prison as part of an amnesty announced by Putin, have been pursuing prison reform since their release. They also have been feted by supporters in the United States and Europe.

(9 Aug 2018) RUSSIAN POLICE BLOCK PUSSY RIOT ACTIVIST FROM TRIP TO UK An activist from the Russian punk collective Pussy Riot says she has been banned from leaving the country. Maria Alekhina said she was heading to Britain to attend a theater performance based on her book when border police turned her back Wednesday (8 AUG. 2018). Russian authorities explained the move by claiming that Alekhina had failed to perform her community service. Alekhina was sentenced to 140 hours of community service for protests outside the Moscow headquarters of the Federal Security Service, the top KGB successor. In December, she unfurled a banner reading "Happy Birthday, Hangmen!" and in April she threw paper planes to protest the agency's demand to shut the messaging service Telegram. Alekhina and Pussy Riot bandmate Nadezhda Tolokonnikova spent nearly two years in prison for a 2012 protest inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior.

A Moscow city court upheld the arrest of Pussy Riot members who barged onto the pitch during the World Cup final, at a hearing in the Russian capital on Monday. The four activists, Pyotr Verzilov, Veronika Nikulshina, Olga Kuracheva and Olga Pakhtusova will serve 15-day sentences for breaching the rules of spectators. The World Cup final between France and Croatia at Moscow’s Luzhniki Stadium on July 15 was briefly stopped as the activists invaded the pitch dressed in police uniforms. According to the Pussy Riot Facebook page, the protest’s demands were the release of political prisoners, to stop of illegal arrests at political rallies, to stop detaining people for no reason and to allow political competition in the country.

Pussy Riot's first song in English is dedicated to Eric Garner and the words he repeated eleven times before his death. This song is for Eric and for all those from Russia to America and around the globe who suffer from state terror - killed, choked, perished because of war and state sponsored violence of all kinds - for political prisoners and those on the streets fighting for change. We stand in solidarity. Pussy Riot's Masha and Nadya are being buried alive in the Russian riot police uniforms that are worn during the violent clashes of police and the protesters fighting for change in Russia. A pack of "Russian Spring" brand cigarettes is on the ground at the beginning. "Russian Spring" is a term used by those who are in love with Russia's aggressive militant actions in Ukraine, and the cigarettes are a real thing. "I Can't Breathe" was recorded in New York in December 2014 during the protests against police brutality together with Pussy Riot, Richard Hell, Nick Zinner, Andrew Wyatt, Shahzad Ismaily (The Ceramic Dog) and Russian bands Jack Wood and Scofferlane. MUSIC VIDEO: Concept, directed and produced: Tasya Krugovyh Video directors - Gogol Wives Director of Photography and editor: Mikhail Vikhrov. MUSIC: Concept, produced: Pussy Riot Vocals: Sasha Klokova (Jack Wood), Matt Kulakov (Scofferlane), Richard Hell Lyrics: Matt Kulakov (Scofferlane) Monologe of Eric Garner: Richard Hell Bit: Andrew Wyatt Piano, Bass: Nick Zinner Drums: Shahzad Ismaily Engineered and mixed by Philip Weinrobe at Figure Eight Studios in Brooklyn, NY LYRICS: He's become his death The spark of the riots That's the way he's blessed To stay alive. It never leads to an end It's never getting quiet If it's unfair, my friend, Make up your mind It's getting dark in New York city It's getting dark in New York city It's getting tight in New York city I need to catch my breath You know this world of hate You know this stubborn light They're in the prayers you pray Late at night We're only half way down Who dares to take a breath? Some fairness might be found From ashes of his death. Eric Garner's last words (read by Richard Hell): Get away [garbled] for what? Every time you see me, you want to mess with me. I'm tired of it. It stops today. Why would you...? Everyone standing here will tell you I didn't do nothing. I did not sell nothing. Because everytime you see me, you want to harass me. You want to stop me [garbled] Selling cigarettes. I'm minding my business, officer, I'm minding my business. Please just leave me alone. I told you the last time, please just leave me alone. please please, don't touch me. Do not touch me. [garbled] I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe. I can't breathe.

More info - http://www.facebook.com/EngPR 20:56 RT: Ok and now I'd like to talk about the trial and jailing of Pussy Riot, that punk group band. There's been much criticism that the sentence handed down was too strong, too much and that the whole case was too big a deal off and that it actually back fired and has brought more people to their cause with the publicity. With hind sight , always a beautiful thing, but with hindsight do you think the case could have been handled differently? Putin: You've been working in Russia for a while now and maybe know some Russian. Could you please translate the name of the band into Russian? RT: Pussy Riot the punk band,I don't know what you would call them in Russian Sir, but may be you could tell me! Putin: Can you translate the first word into Russian? Or maybe it would sound too obscene? Yes, I think you wouldn't do it because it sounds too obscene, even in English. RT: I actually thought it was referring to a cat, but I'm getting your point here. Do you think the case was handled wrongly in any way, could some lesson have been learned? Putin: I know you understand it perfectly well, you don't need to pretend you don't get it. It's just because these people made everyone say their band's name too many times. It's obscene -- but forget it. Here's what I would like to say. I have always felt that punishment should be proportionate to the offence. I am not in a position now and would not like, anyway, to comment on the decision of a Russian court, but I would rather talk about the moral side of the story. First, in case you never heard of it, a couple of years ago one of the band's members put up three effigies in one of Moscow's big supermarkets, with a sign saying that Jews, gays and migrant workers should be driven out of Moscow. I think the authorities should have looked into their activities back then. After that, they staged an orgy in a public place. Of course, people are allowed to do whatever they want to do, as long as it's legal, but this kind of conduct in a public place should not go unnoticed by the authorities. Then they uploaded the video of that orgy on the internet. You know some fans of group sex say it's better than one-on-one because, like in any team, you don't need to hit the ball all the time. Again, it's okay if you do what you like privately, but I wouldn't be that certain about uploading your acts on the internet. It could be the subject of legal assessment, too. Then they turned up at Yelokhovo Cathedral, here in Moscow, causing unholy mayhem, and went to another cathedral and caused mayhem there, too. You know, Russians still have painful memories of the early years of Soviet rule, when thousands of Orthodox, Muslim, as well as clergy of other religions were persecuted. Soviet authorities brutally repressed the clergy. Many churches were destroyed. The attacks had a devastating effect on all our traditional religions. And so in general I think the state has to protect the feelings of believers. I will not comment on whether the verdict is well-grounded and the sentence proportionate to the offence. These girls must have lawyers who defend their interests in court. They have the right to file an appeal and demand a new hearing. But it's up to them, it's just a legal issue. RT: Is it realistic at all they will get some sort of early release? Putin: I don't know whether their lawyers have filed an appeal or not. I don't follow the case that closely. If they appeal, a higher court is empowered to take any decision. To be honest, I try to stay as far away from the case as possible. I know the details but I do not want to get into it. RT: There's concern here and abroad that Russia has been suffering a clamp down on the opposition since you returned as President. There's tighter defamation law, upping the fines for defamation, internet censorship laws brought into protect children. All these introduced under your watch. What's the balance do you think between a healthy opposition and maintaining law and order? what's your view? Putin: So is it true then that other countries don't have laws that ban child pornography, including online? RT: Indeed they do. Putin: So they do? Well, we didn't, until recently. And if we began to protect our society and our children from these offences...

This is Pussy Riot's new video... the first one since two members were freed from jail. In true Pussy Riot fashion, brightly colored ski masks hide the women's faces as they protest while rocking out. This time, in Sochi. They're criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin for hosting the Olympics as a - quote - public relations stunt. Saying it's his attempt to paper over the country's human rights violations. The rockers spoke during a news conference Thursday: (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) PUSSY RIOT MEMBER, NADEZHDA TOLOKONNIKOVA, SAYING: "The Olympics have turned a police state into a complete police state; an authoritarian regime into a totalitarian regime with preventative arrests. My relationship to the Olympics is that the Olympics create a space for the complete destruction of human rights in Russia. Here we are banned from speaking out..." The girls are beaten by Cossacks in the video - patrolmen who are reinforcing security around the Games. They also say they've been detained three times trying to film the video.

(13 Sep 2018) Doctors in Russia said a hospitalised member of protest group Pussy Riot may have been poisoned by an overdose of medication. Independent news website Meduza reported on Thursday that Pyotr Verzilov's doctors told his relatives that he either overdosed on medicine or was given too much medicine. The report did not specify the substance. Fellow Pussy Riot member Veronika Nikulshina told The Associated Press that the report was accurate but wouldn't comment further. Friends insisted that Verzilov, who has been hospitalised in Moscow since Tuesday, hadn't been taking medications or using drugs. Verzilov and other activists served 15-day jail sentences for disrupting July's World Cup final to protest excessive Russian police powers.
