A Moscow court Friday handed a two-year jail sentence to three feminist punk rockers who infuriated the Kremlin and captured world attention by ridiculing President Vladimir Putin in Russia’s main church.

They were protesting about the election and the rule of President Vladimir Putin also the changes made to the laws.
This is seen as a court ruling and a political act under the orders of Vladimir Putin, with protests all around the world.
Witnesses saw about 60 Pussy Riot fans — ex-chess champion and fierce Putin critic Garry Kasparov among them — being taken away into waiting vans by police during more than three hours of hearing.
Vladimir Putin has already used his power to slap new restrictions on protests and political organisations with foreign sources of income.
After the sentence a protest outside the Cathedral by about 30 people was quickly stopped.
The world would need to stop helping Russia in any way to change things or the people will start a bloody revolution.
