Pussy Riot protesters cleared of religious hatred charge

Source: Reuters

(Reuters) - Two women from Russia's Pussy Riot protest group who were jailed for a song deriding President Vladimir Putin were cleared in a Moscow court on Friday of inciting religious hatred.

But the court knocked only one month off their two-year sentences, upholding a charge of hooliganism.

Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova spent nearly two years in prison after performing a protest song against Putin in Moscow's main cathedral in 2012.

Many in the West criticized the harshness of the sentence, saying it was evidence of a clamp-down on dissent.

1. I call my cats pussy riot (when they are acting naughty). Does that mean I'm a hooligan?

2. Yes, you are a hooligan.

 

Turn yourself in to the Kremlin NOW and they might only give you two years in the gulag.
