MOSCOW, July 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Moscow's Khamovniki court has started considering the Pussy Riot case on its merits. The defendants are accused of committing an act of hooliganism in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. They have offered an apology for their action that hurt the feelings of the faithful.
Lawyer Violetta Volkova cited Nadezhda Tolokonnikova's statement over the accusation. "Our pleading not guilty (of hooliganism) does not mean that we are not ready to explain our actions and do not admit our mistakes. The mistake is that we brought the developing music genre to the cathedral. If someone is hurt, I am ready to admit that we made an ethical mistake, Tolokonnikova said in her statement on behalf of all the defendants.
