The Pussy Riot Case: 2 Years In Colony For Premediated Religious Hatred
Pussy Riot: 2 years in colony

The Khamovnichesky Court in Moscow has found the Pussy Riot girls guilty of a premediated instigation of religious hatred. Three women, of which 2 are mothers to small kids, are each sentenced to 2 years in colony.

      The trial, closely followed and actively commented in real-time on Twitter, made people worldwide raise their eyebrows. For all the bad taste in which the political opinion could be expressed by Pussy Riot girls, any prison sentence would be considered too harsh and ludicrous, considering the democratic status that Russia claims to be aiming for.

      We will update this report with quotes from news agencies and Twitter posts sent during the reading of the verdict.
