Russian Prime Minister Could Free Punk Band [VIDEO]

YouTube

Remember back in 2003 when Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks told a British audience ten days before the invason in Iraq broke out that ”we don’t want this war, this violence, and we’re ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas.”  The public uproar was crazy, people burned their CD’s, they were banned from radio and basically black-balled into submission.Well it seems the Russian punk band Pussy Riot have stirred the same pot in Moscow. The band was arrested and jailed back in August after being charged for “hooliganism driven by religious hatred.” Three members were arrested after performing a “raunchy” prayer in a main cathedral in Moscow, asking the Virgin Mary to save Russia from Vladimir Putin.

After a world-wide outcry of support for the band, it looks like Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, has finally come to the bands rescue. Medvedev, has called for the release of Pussy Riot, saying further imprisonment would be “unproductive.” The Prime Minister’s comments could free the band before their appeals case gets underway on Octocber 1.
