Pussy Riot supporter stages 'crucifixation'

Text size Aa Aa

A woman spent almost an hour on a cross outside a central St. Petersburg church in protest against the prosecution of Pussy Riot, a punk band being tried over an anti-putin performance inside Moscow’s main cathedral.

The 22-year-old was dressed in the same garments the group used to perform their hit ‘Mother of God send Putin Away’ in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral at the beginning of the year.

Although the staged event was conducted during a peak tourist time it failed to generate much attention.

Since this protest the Russian government has rushed a law through parliament, which will tighten controls over civil rights groups.
