    If it’s not staged.

    I like the pussy riot collective. They have serious minerals.

    Makes you realise how those who moan about the Polis in this country should realise all things are relative.

    Pussy Riot come across as rather ” stroppy teenager” but I respect their desire to fight against the powers that be in Russia. They have bigger balls than a lot of men for sure.

    I expect they knew that was the reaction they’d get but good on them.

    Those yelps of pain are pretty damn genuine.

    Hopefully these “real men” will try to attack people who can fight back next time and get what they deserve. Putin’s Russia is just a fascist state where opponents are put in jail and journalists are murdered if they dig too deep.

    Just watched that 😯

    Feels like an attitude that comes from the top.
    I can imagine Putin* telling his minions to whip down any protest nonsense 🙄

    *probably with his shirt off 😉

    You can take Putin out of the KGB, but you can’t take the KGB out of Putin…

    Appalling, even though they were trying to provoke a reaction, and deeply stupid of the Cossacks.

    Cant pussy riot just go away? They are cringeworthy at best. It’d be doing the world a favour. Sick of hearing about their name.

    A very brave bunch.

    It doesn’t take much for Russia’s mask to slip.

    I agree with Hora. I’d encourage you all to do some research about the freedom fighting Pussy Riot before reassessing your opinions. Russia is backwards and Putin is dangerous, I totally agree with that but the media has glorified Pussy Riot into something they are not. Points of interest.

    Chicken carcass inserted into body in supermarket “in protest”
    Orgy in a library “in protest”
    Sacking the two inprisoned members because they were getting too famous!!

    As a prime minister they are certainly not a group of people I’d be inclined to listen to

    point of interest: cops using whips on women half their size… for what?

    Never said that their treatment was justified, just that they’re not the messiah’s they’ve been portrayed to be. To me their previous actions have totally discredited any message they are trying to make.

    It looks to me like they are pretending to give a message whilst really trying to become a version of 90’s Russian Spice Girls.

    For all the slagging off alot of people would have put alot of work into the Russian winter Olympics, alot of people have trained years to compete. They come across as absolute amateur pop idiots. Ill-conceived self promotion.

    Plus thats not whipping, its not even M&S special whipping. Its half-assed move-whipping FFS. Seen how the BRITISH Police dealt with the peaceful Countryside Alliance in London a few years back? That was disgusting.

    Pussy Riot are just a bunch of Bridget-Jones-eqsue muppets in childrens presenter clothing designed by Timmy Mallet singing lame songs in an effort to drum up business.

    People Like Greenpeace, jesus now I take my hat firmly off to them. Shot at, rammed you name it.

    You know they’ve spent two years in prison, right?

    For breaking the law.

    What do you think would happen to a group of people that acted that way in this country. You cant expect people to accept that behaviour just because their country is governed by a tyrant?

    Hora, do you have issues with women? I have no idea what pussy riot are like nor do I really care I respect their right to protest without being attacked I wonder why you do not.

    Everyone has that right. Pussy Riot abuse that right and often deal with the consequences. I am yet to see/read about a meaningful, organised and effective protest by Pussy Riot. Just media exposure for being silly.

    They went into a church (sacred to some you know) and sang the lords shit (etc).

    Ranging on a spectrum: In our country you’d be taken to the Maldives on a correctional learning experience through to, flogging or being executed nearby in many many countries.

    One was released on parole, two served 21months (probably because they set it up/the idea behind it).

    Hora, do you have issues with idiots?

    No but when I see grown men posting on a forum in shock and horror over self-promotional idiots trying to disrupt hardwork and cost with not even a good attempt at hijacking then I’ll post. Is that ok.

    Do some research? Maybe…

    Same applies to edl I’m afraid, although I have protested against them.
    Hora, nothing you say or indeed misquote makes a lot of sense to me I think you need to calm down.

    Can’t help wondering if their name could have had a better translation.
    maybe

    anagallis_arvensis then don’t make bizarre and insulting insinuations? Saying I have a problem with women based on my dislike for a band?

    What does concern me is whats happening in the Ukraine.

    To be fair, their music is pretty shocking. Maybe that is what upset the angry cossack most.

    This exactly. If that video is for real (And it looks it) then they did nothing other than use words. Whatever those words were (I don’t speak Russian, sorry) they didn’t deserve that beating at all.

    no its based on your apparent approval of young women being kicked and hit with whips because they have the nerve to be self promoting. Obviously you think these women should know their place.

    Seems strange that they chose an empty area to protest and get a whipping, maybe if they’d of chose somewhere more public the Cossacks would’ve backed off?

    I find myself agreeing with Hora.

    I too find thier immature stunts just publicity seeking trolls for to expand the name of the band and no more. I’m not saying they deserved a whipping, no no I’m not.

    I’d buy that for a dollar. Any whipping involved then? 😀

    Pussy Riots methodology (right down to their name choice) are in danger of trivialising the issues they are protesting against and alienating the mainstream Russians. If I was Putin they would be my ideal “opposition” . Run a country like he does and protesting opposition is inevitable (he knows and expects this) – he could not have scripted a better bunch of flakes to take up the mantle.

    I think they’re **** fantastic. The more they get on the news the more they’re a thorn in Putin’s side. The ‘self-publicity’ thing is pretty much bullshine imo, the downsides are definitely outweighing anything they’re getting in return.

    It needs extreme methods to get reported on though. They’re not hurting anyone but have found a way to get international attention.

    you do wonder if they work better abroad than at home.
