In Germany, the Femen group also did something similar insite a cathedral...Next will be the assault to America, with hundreds of "Pussyriots&quo t; and "Femen" in American cathedrals...

That's exactly what Greenpeace do, they're in it to make money. They threatened the lives of some oil workers and spun the story so that people sympathize with them and give them cash.

I fully support the band members and the greenpeace supporters but in most Christian countries if you hi-jacked a church for your own political purposes you would expect to get charged with a crime, maybe not expecting such a large sentence but come on people, if you take on Putin that's what is going to happen. the band members knew this and did it anyway. good that are to be released soon. Just a pity that the message has been sent to other protesters with the band being locked up.

  


Why would you support them? They're stupid and they're criminals.

They should have been kept in jail. They're lucky Russia was kind enough to release them early.

Negotiations could go either way and the Russian government is trying to be fair.

Now they will come out as heroes. Release P.... Riot to Saudi Arabia or Chicago southside where their "talents" would be appreciated. RT computer wont let me print their name.

The Only Problem with the P-Riot Girls was their Choice of an Altar as a Stage

If they want to Stage-Dress their Next Performance as a High Altar?

It is the duty of young adults to express their feelings whether for or against something. After all they and their children are going to inherit the future. And it's the duty of the state to take it into consideration. Jailing young women for protests which most people take as just entertainment is too much. A financial punishment, a fine, would do.

I have nothing against or for them. But how they those girls arranged to have such a big influence? who is their godfather?

  


By being outrageous !

Over here in Britain / `the west' so called `Pop' Stars like Ga Ga turn to near pornography to get attention.

Drug abuse, is another way.

The good, the decent are down graded, so please dont let it happen in Russia.

It's funny how western news sources carry on like they have 100% backing from their readership/viewershi p..quite pathetic assuming a bunch of Bolshevik hags will get any support in the West...they're losing and losing large...

Congratulations on amending the Amnesty Law to cover more crimes like hooliganism. However neither the P*ssy Riot nor the Arctic 30 are deserving of any amnesty as long as they believe that they are innocent. No remorse- no amnesty!!! Russia is sovereign and should not bow to eco-terrorists who do not respect anybody or government. Let them try to protest in Saudi Arabia, Iran or North Korea!!!
