@6.44. If a Church of God cannot proclaim to be public property then it is not a church of God.

2 years may seem harsh, however they have shown no remorse for their actions. I'm an American woman who lives in France and I do support this punishment simply because they did not protest on public property. They violently protested in a church, which is private property. Had they taken their protest to someplace public like a park, etc it would be different. I also don't think they should do nude and violent protests anywhere in public where children can see this. Surely there is a better way to get their point across?

Imagine if that was done in an American synagogue. What would that be called a hate crime, 30 yrs.

Prison admin showed a p orn film to the prisoners and lied that Alyokhina was in it.

they were fully aware of the laws. Putin let them go, numerous times. the girls chose to go into a crowded church, and they wanted to take it that far.
2 years is 2 years and theyre halfway done. will they do the church deal again? who knows. but Putin did let them go, many times. it got much further then anybody here in the US could do.

So Russians support imprisoning people who offend them, but not corrupt officials? That's pathetic.

For once a victory of decency and civilisation over the American sponsored forces of neo-bolshevism.
