Has anyone noticed that there are elements of male excluding womanism here which is a form of man hate. I love their protests and their fighting spirit and I love feminism but male exclusion is reverse sexism. Just because some women refuse to see their own man hate does not mean that all of us can't see it. Up with feminism, down with man hate.

No doubt they will be supported by some US NGO. It is something US has been doing lately, supporting terrorists in Syria, Nazis in Ukraine and now so called "human rights group".

This nonsense about Pu ssy Riot starting a human rights group is an insult to people who do work for human rights. They played some insulting "shows" inside a church purely to insult politicians but tread all over the rights of Christian believes at the same time. What about the rights of the church goes to not have their sanctuary misused in that way? Pathetic. Your 15 minutes of fame are over. Ska-nks

If you compared how much democracy there is between Russia and the US. There is absolutely no competion. Anti us propaganda by kremlin sponsored rt. No freedom of protest in Russia. If you tread on your dictators toes Putin you end up in prison or for some dead. Give me a western accountable judiciary anyday

the P Riot members should try becoming US citizens - and THEN turn their "antigovernment prayer" and protests to their "land of the free" adopted government and country -- and see where that gets them........a jail next door to Chelsea Manning perhaps.....

  



Chelsea Manning didn't say bad things about Obama. She released classified material. Show me someone in Russia that similarly stole information from the Russian army and is free. Go online and look up negative sites and protests against the government of the US. It's a regular occurrence! And no one goes to jail.

and if they think their own government is so bad - from their "anti-governmen t prayer" songs -- they should get a sampling of living in the USA under ITS government....or how INTOLERANT american "christians&quo t; actually are......they just might find out how much freedom THEY might actually enjoy in russia by comparison....

So!! they invite a Capitalist Tycoon who could hardly care less about prison conditions for anyone but himself...and of course keep his billions....shows something about them...but it's NOT about principles as they claim. but if huma rights are so important to them -- there's a country that REALLY NMEEDS their work.......it's the USA"s prison system...and its secret Torture Gulags across the world.....

Haha, Open Your eyes. USA is the master of propaganda, and they have commed far to destroy the Whole world With their s hit

And not to be offensive to Russians, but propaganda is huge in your country. The Nazis kept their people under propaganda and believed that they were telling the truth. Outside sources are a blessing, and we can see some of the atrocities that Putin commits whilst being viewed as a hero.

Obviously Russia is nowhere near as bad as Nazi Germany, but the same sort of brainwashing happens.

I think the pussyriots are just some opportunistic airheads regardless of what the western governments and especial interests inject into heads or feed them to say.

Human rights groups have become infiltrated subsidized by corrupt western governments. They should take a look at all the injustices in the western countries.

  


Kh odorkovsky was framed by a man in power, he was doomed to go to prison. He was seen as a potential threat.

The group are simply protesting. Since when was protesting illegal? Oh wait, since expressing yourself as gay and being blasphemous was. 2014 Russia...My country (UK) is far from perfect, but at least we have decent human rights (apart from the fact that if you make a deadly offensive tweet you can be sentenced). Russians need to see that although it might have been extreme protesting in a church, they done it as for years the church has been very close to the govt. That makes anyone who is not Orthodox at a disadvantage in life as some Muslims in Russia have discovered.

Those women are punk. They betray their own country. They cannot travel; live as they do, without receiving money from somewhere. Consequently, they must pay back one way or an other. Certainly, helping Russia's enemies. Somehow, they are moral prostitutes ( may be physical also). One say is: Tell me who you like to visit and I shall tell you who you are. Apparently Khodorkovski is your man!
