SOCHI (INTELLIHUB) — “Pussy Riot’ has struck back, after facing pressure from Putin’s iron fist.

In fact, the band was recently flogged in the Olympic venue after protesting Putin for their new music video earlier this week.

Pussy Riot wants to get their point across to the masses, demonstrating diplomacy failure on the Russian government’s part.

Pussy Riot members have also warned and wonder what will happen to animal rights and other political activists after the cameras and crowd dies down for the winter Olympics currently ongoing in Sochi.

Pussy Riot has had several run-ins with the law in the past few weeks.
