HELSINKI, August 20 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said it is inadmissible to interfere in the court’s work on Pussy Riot.
Lavrov comes against snap judgements and the hysteria in this aspect.
After the talks with his Finnish counterpart Erkki Tuomioja on Monday, Lavrov said, “The answer is simple. One cannot interfere in the court’s work. One can agree or not on the verdict. But it is inadmissible to interfere in the court’s work.”
“Let’s not coming to snap judgments and getting into a tantrum. None has cancelled the juridical work,” he stressed.
The Moscow Khamovniki District Court found guilty Pussy Riot punk band members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich in the case of the punk prayer at the Christ the Saviour Cathedral in Moscow.
They were sentenced to two years in a general penitentiary for the act of religiously motivated hooliganism, Presiding Judge Marina Syrova said.
