Putin slams Pussy Riots' 'anti-government' protests as 'Cathedral orgies'
London, Sept 7 (ANI): Hopes of an early jail release for the Pussy Riot punk protesters dimmed, as Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a withering attack on three feminist band members jailed for chanting an 'anti-government' punk prayer.
During a television interview, Putin slammed three women who were jailed by a Moscow court last month after being found guilty of 'hooliganism' after they had briefly taken over the pulpit at Christ The Savior Cathedral, in February, chanting 'Mother Mary, drive Putin away'.
"First they went to the Yelokhovsky Cathedral and conducted an orgy there and then they went to the other cathedral and had another orgy," the Daily Mail quoted Putin, as saying.
"The state is obliged to protect the feelings of the faithful," he added.
He also chided the police for taking no action when one of the three, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, was involved in a sexually explicit protest four years ago in a biological museum.
"They had a group sex session in a public place. They then uploaded it onto the Internet. The authorities should have looked at this too," he said.
According to the paper, recalling a Soviet-era joke, he said, 'some fans say that group sex is better than one-on-one because - like in any collective work - you can take it easy a bit.'
Putin also asked his interviewer if he knew what the band's name meant.
"There is no need to pretend that you don't know. It's indecent," he added. (ANI)
