A further appeal hearing is scheduled to be heard today into the Russian punk band Pussy Riot’s two-year prison camp sentence for staging a protest in Moscow’s main cathedral.

The first hearing was adjourned after one of the women fired her lawyer.

In an interview to mark his 60th birthday on Sunday, President Vladimir Putin described jailing the women as the “right decision.”

The trio were found guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred after storming into the cathedral of Christ the Saviour and staging a performance.
