All-Girl Russian Punk Band ‘Pussy Riot’ Rages Against Putin (Video)

Russian punk protest babes – Pussy Riot.

The all-girl Russian punk rock band “Pussy Riot” is gaining in popularity after they held an impromptu performance in Red Square taunting Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.


Then they were detained.

AFP reported:

Wrapped up against Russia’s midwinter in vivid balaclavas, brightly coloured minidresses and not much else, eight members of an all-girl punk group stood on a platform in Red Square and started an impromptu show.

“Riot in Russia!” they screamed, before taunting Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and urging Russians to hit the streets in protest.

The band, Pussy Riot, has been gaining Internet notoriety after their January 20 gig of sorts, the latest in a string of impromptu performances to protest Putin’s candidacy for the presidency.

The radical feminists’ eyecatching show in front of Saint Basil’s Cathedral lasted mere minutes, but long enough for them to let off smoke flares, wave a flag and strum an unplugged guitar. Police let the women play a short song lampooning Putin — twice — before detaining them.

Many in Russia are angered by Putin’s bid to return to the Kremlin. President from 2000 to 2008 and now prime minister, he aims to regain the job in the March 4 election.
