    ***** Riot

    Well 3 members of ***** riot have been sentenced to 2 years in jail for this.



    Judge Marina Syrova: "These three plus others... plotted together to undermine civil order, motivated by religious hatred"

    Three members of Russian punk band ***** Riot have been jailed for two years after staging an anti-Vladimir Putin protest in a Moscow cathedral.

    Judge Marina Syrova convicted the women of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred, saying they had "crudely undermined social order".

    The women say the protest, in February, was directed at the Russian Orthodox Church leader's support for Mr Putin.

    The US, UK and EU all criticised the sentences as "disproportionate".

    Prosecutors had been seeking a three-year jail sentence for the women.

    Judge Syrova said Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29, had offended the feelings of Orthodox believers and shown a "complete lack of respect".

    "Tolokonnikova, Alyokhina and Samutsevich committed hooliganism - in other words, a grave violation of public order," she said.
    Worldwide protests

    Along with other members of their band, the women staged a flashmob-style performance of their song close to the altar in the cathedral on 21 February.

    Their brief, obscenity-laced performance, which implored the Virgin Mary to "throw Putin out", enraged the Orthodox Church - its leader Patriarch Kirill said it amounted to blasphemy.

    Mr Putin was elected for a third term as president two weeks later.

    Alyokhina, Tolokonnikova and Samutsevich, watching Friday's proceedings from inside a glass-walled cage in the courtroom, smiled as the widely predicted conviction was announced.

    The judge then took three hours to read the verdict, before handing down "two years deprivation of liberty in a penal colony" for each defendant.

    "Considering the nature and degree of the danger posed by what was done, the defendants' correction is possible only through an actual punishment," she said.

    One man in the courtroom shouted "shame" at the sentencing, and there were chants and whistles from the band's supporters outside.

    Tolokonnikova's husband, Pyotr Verzilov, said: "Russia's image was quite scary even before [this]. What happened now is a clear sign that Russia is moving towards becoming more like China or North Korea."

    Opposition leader Alexei Navalny added: "They are in jail because it is Putin's personal revenge. This verdict was written by Vladimir Putin."

    The defendants' lawyer, Nikolai Polozov, said they would not appeal to President Putin for a pardon. However, there will be a legal appeal against the verdict.

    BBC doesnt lie. they cannot lie, there are rules in th UK stopping them and all British broadcasters from telling lies and embellishing on the truth anyone that tells you otherwise is telling lies.

    Sure they did wrong but does it deserve 2 year in prison?

    I'm sorry but the US has no credibility on this matter. We actively hunt and kill people of other beliefs and religions with drones. You can't get more disproportionate than that. Remember, we assassinated an American citizen on his ALLEGED ties to terrorism... with a drone... and then proceeded to kill his 16 year old son... on American soil... with a drone. We've no right to voice an opinion on the human rights issue of this and we've no right to tell another sovereign nation how to conduct its business.

    Right place or not I think they are making a very valid point that the people of Russia do not do such things not out of respect but more so due to fear of prosecution.
