Khamovnichesky court will not call President Vladimir Putin in testimony in the case of Pussy Riot. The judge Marina Syrova deflected the application of the defense to summon the president and the patriarch of Moscow and all-Russia Kirill. The court continued the preliminary hearings into the criminal case against the punk-band on Monday.
Three punk-band members are accused of hooliganism for staging the so-called ‘punk prayer’ performance inside Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral in February. They are facing up to 7 years behind bars.
At the previous court session the judge satisfied the request of the public prosecutor to extend the detention term for the defendants for another six months until January 12, 2013. A criminal case against three Pussy Riot members was opened in March. Since then the women have been kept in custody.
