The three women of Pussy Riot will have to go to prison for their stunt in a church earlier this year. The judge sentenced Pussy Riot to 2 years in prison for hooliganism that was driven by hatred against religion. A couple weeks ago Putin was saying that he would like to see a mild verdict. Is 2 years mild? I do not think so. Pussy Riot already spent 6 month in prison. Now the face another 1 and a half years.
