Pussy Riot Music Video Found 'Extremist'

On Thursday, November 29, a Moscow court ruled that a video by punk group Pussy Riot is extremist and it should be banned from the Russian Internet.

      Prosecutors argued the video, which featured five members of the group dancing at the altar of Moscow’s Christ the Savior cathedral and shouting out a “punk prayer” against President Vladimir Putin and Patriarch Kirill, was offensive to Russia’s Orthodox Christian population.

      Russian Internet providers will be required to block access to the video once the three-day appeal period expires. Google, a video-hosting website YouTube's owner, agreed to block access to the video only after receiving a court order, according to the company's Russia representative.
