Pussy Riot Releases Video of Beating in Sochi

Pussy Riot are back at it, because that’s what you do when you’re a Russian feminist punk rock protest band.

Pussy Riot’s songs are based on what they stand up for, women, LGBT rights, and speaking out against Russian president Vladimir Putin and his policies. The Russian government doesn’t take too kindly to this.

In 2012, the band performed an anti government song inside of a church and were charged with “hooliganism” and two of their members were sent to separate prisons. They were released in December of 2013.That’s a fun charge for the ‘ol permanent record.

Most recently, Pussy Riot decided that the perfect place to film a video for their new song “Putin Teaches Us To Love Our Motherland”, was outside of the Sochi Olympics. They were met by security who pepper sprayed them, whipped them, hit them with batons and violently shoved them.

Russian authorities have yet to comment.
