The investigation into the case of a Russian punk band Pussy Riot, three members of which have been detained early in March, is completed. That’s according to Mark Feygin, the lawyer of one of the three detained band members. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina and Ekaterina Samutsevich were charged with hooliganism after bursting into Moscow’s main Christ the Savior Cathedral in February. At the altar, the band yelled out the song criticizing the Church and the government. The Pussy Riot performance triggered a broad response, with public opinion split on the possible punishment. The girls could face up to 7 years behind bars. The feminist punk-rock band staged several politically provocative actions in Moscow, and has already performed in the metro, on top of a detention facility and on the Red Square.
