Russian court deems Pussy Riot video ‘extremist’

Moscow’s Zamoskvoretsky Court on Thursday declared videos by the Pussy Riot punk group extremist, including one showing the ‘guerilla’ performance in the Christ the Savior Cathedral. The ruling concerns almost all of the group’s videos, meaning that access to them on the internet will be blocked. The Khamovnichesky Court sentenced the three Pussy Riot members to two years in prison on August 17 for their performance in the cathedral. Later, the Moscow City Court commuted Ekaterina Samutsevich’s sentence from two years in prison to probation.
