Pussy Riot members attacked by Cossacks while staging protest in Sochi

The Russian punk-protest group Pussy Riot had pledged for months to seek to disrupt the Sochi Olympics, and has begun carrying through on that promise. But the group's latest attempt at a protest was dismantled almost before it began.

One day after members of the loosely-connected group were questioned in connection with some suspected thefts at a Sochi hotel, Pussy Riot gathered at a restaurant in downtown Sochi, about 20 miles from the Olympic village. The band attempted to begin performing, but was set upon by whip-wielding Cossack militiamen.

The gold medal goes to Vladimir Putin for the best effort at making a crackdown on anti-gay demonstrations look positively gay.

Leather whips, bushy mustaches, cossack hats, Gestapo uniforms, bondage masks, all the colors of the rainbow represented, and the only Olympic event that the Russian are truly recognized to dominate in seems to be Men's Ice Dancing.

But honestly, Russia: Your footwear fashion is stuck in 1979.

What. In. THE. Hell.

Pussy Riot
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot is a Russian feminist punk rock protest group based in Moscow. Founded in August 2011, it has a variable membership of approximately 11 women[1] ranging in age from about 20 to 33.[2] They stage unauthorized provocative guerrilla performances in unusual public locations, which are edited into music videos and posted on the Internet.[3] Their lyrical themes include feminism, LGBT rights, opposition to the policies of Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom they regard as a dictator,[2] and links between Putin and the leadership of the Russian Orthodox Church.[4]

You know what annoys me the most? Here we have a feminist band (won't even dignify it with the word, "punk") looking for publicity, and the Russians know it.

So what do the Russians do? Give them more publicity than they could ever dream about.

Cossacks look like Cossacks. There they carry whips whereas South African police still carry sjamboks. Questionably relevant anarchofeminists look like questionably relevant anarchofeminists.

A local news broadcast played a clip of one of their recordings yesterday. It sounded to me like Klingon opera - just awful.

Plus, you either need to shave the armpits regularly, or let em grow. Five ‘O Clock shadow is not a good look in that location.

Yep.

When I think of the word “cossacks”, I think of Russia of the 18-19th, very early 20th century. Not now.

The Cossacks are making a comeback here. They patrol the streets here alongside the police. Usually you see them on patrol in teams of three.

Putin wishes he could make all his enemies vanish, just like he did in the old days when he was KGB.

Pussy Riot is Russia’s Westboro Baptist Church. With better videos.

No I have never watched or heard PR.

Sorry... but I saw that HBO movie of them. They arrested one screaming pussy rioter (complete with mask) as she climbed up on a fence calling for men having sex with men privileges and other such nonsense. I thought it was funny as all heck.

Oh yes. Russia has Cossacks, Ukraine has Cossacks as does Belarus. They are traditionally the light cavalry of the Steppe countries.

Last night I started watching a long thing on youtube on the history of Ukraine in light of current events. Even from way back it has been a country tugged at from different directions.

The area was originaly called Rus (not to be confused with Russia). The Cossacks were originally guys that wanted freedom, including outlaws, etc. that lived out along some river (Dinebe?? or something out on the wilderness steppes). They would raid cities, etc. using boats. The name “Ukraine” had something to do with the Cossacks, and the idea of freedom. I wasn't taking notes so I'm sure I got some stuff wrong - but is very interesting.

In the video I was watching it showed the statue that the protesters in Kiev are camped out by, at that time surrounded by a beautiful park, trees, etc. Kiev was invaded and taken over by the Vikings in 900 AD or something - and they ruled and became assimilated into the region for hundreds of years!
