Pussy Riot Release New Video After World Cup Protest: Watch

Pussy Riot have released a new song and video following their pitch invasion protest at Sunday’s World Cup final.

The song, titled “Track About Good Cop,” references the statement the group released contrasting a “Heavenly cop,” who fights for the Russian people, with the “Earthly cop” who represses them.

The four Pussy Riot members who rushed the field received 15-day prison sentences and three-year bans on attending sporting events.

The video, starring a man in a Russian police uniform, illustrates the song’s lyrics about a mythical good cop who dances in the snow and kisses other cops.

The description playfully credits Russia’s Ministry of Internal Affairs with styling the video, along with Pussy Riot affiliate Gala Latygovskaya.

Sunday’s protest saw Pussy Riot members Veronica “Nika” Nikulshina, Olga Kuracheva, Olga Pakhtusova, and Petya Verzilov run onto the pitch in old-fashioned police uniforms.

They have now expanded to include the release of imprisoned Pussy Riot members.

Four members from the punk rock band Pussy Riot were jailed Sunday and charged with crimes after storming the field during the World Cup Final match between France and Croatia.

Four pussy riot members are still in the police station “Luzhniki”.

The police is still refusing to allow the layer to the pussy riot members who are still in their custody.

Current situation: the 4 pussy riot members spent the whole night at the police station and are still there – going to be brought to the court.

Pussy Riot said the whole thing was a public protest again human rights abuses in Russia, where the World Cup was held this summer.

Pussy Riot said that Russian officials won’t give them information on where and when the court hearing will be held, which they believe is to prevent human rights activists from attending.

Pussy Riot Members Arrested For Rushing World Cup Field In Moscow

Pussy Riot Members Arrested For Rushing World Cup Field In Moscow The activist and punk-music collective has taken responsibility for the four protesters who intruded on the tournament’s final game.

On social media, Pussy Riot took responsibility for the protest.

The Khamovnichesky court is the same at which three Pussy Riot members – Maria Alyokhina, Yekaterina Samutsevich and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova – were convicted in August 2012 of hooliganism and sentenced to two years of penal labor for a “Punk prayer” the group staged inside of Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Savior in February 2012.

Verzilov, the man who allegedly rushed on the field yesterday, is Tolokonnikova’s husband; like his wife, he was part of the political protest/performance art collective Voina, which led to the creation of Pussy Riot.

Pussy Riot listed several demands as part of its World Cup action, including the release of all political prisoners in Russia; not imprisoning people for social media “Likes” and sharing; stopping “Illegal” arrests during rallies; allowing political competition in the country; and “Not fabricate accusations and not keep people in jails for no reason.”

The group also noted that the World Cup final coincided with the eleventh death anniversary of the poet, artist, actor and musician Dimitri Prigov, whose poetic cycle about a Soviet policeman apparently inspired Sunday’s Pussy Riot protest, which contrasted the idea of a “Heavenly,” morally just policeman with an “Earthly” one.

Though social media featured both video and stills of the protest, American television viewers watching the game live missed much of the Pussy Riot action.
