Pussy Riot Trial: Putin Mocked Over Feminist Punk Band Trial (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

The members of feminist punk band Pussy Riot face up to three years in prison for storming a Cathedral and singing an anti-Putin "punk prayer" ahead of last year's presidential elections in Russia.

Now, Facebook users angered by the trial have taken up the group's cause to denounce Russian President Vladimir Putin using art.

"Sweet little Vladimir Putin is afraid of girls dancing in a church," and "It's true, Putin is afraid of pussies," stay true to the form of Pussy Riot's original protest: "Virgin Mary, Mother of God, Put Putin away. Put Putin away, Put Putin away," the women screamed on the stage of the Cathedral, donning balaclavas and miniskirts.
