Text size Aa Aa

Russian punk protest group Pussy Riot have released a new video criticsing Russia’s natural resources and economy. Their first release for almost a year, entitled “Like in a Red Prison,” took aim Putin’s management of the oil industry.

In the video four members of the group are seen climbing on gas flares and oil pipelines in their trademark brightly coloured clothes and masks. Some members of the feminist art performance group are then seen pouring what seems to be oil over a portrait of Igor Sechin, head of the state oil firm, Rosneft.

Two of the members of Pussy Riot are currently in jail for a protest held at a Russian Orthodox cathedral in Moscow. They were convicted of hooliganism motivated by racial hatred.
