Visitors to Russia’s main cathedral have got more of a sight than they bargained for, as a masked feminist punk band broke into impromptu blasphemous song – right at the altar.

Dressed in luminous outfits, the Pussy Riot band yelled out their irreverent number – entitled Holy S**t – before finally being marched out by security.

The girls are known for their illegal gigs in public places, rebellious stance and shocking lyrics. Their previous performance last month, just around the corner in Red Square, included a song addressed to Prime Minister Vladimir Putin who, according to them, was terrified at the recent opposition demos.

Since Pussy Riot was formed last year, some 30 young women have been involved in its raucous rampages. Its members have often been detained and fined.
