Police stops recording of Pussy Riot video clip

2 min read

The Russian police stopped the recording of a video clip of the punk band Pussy Riot in St. Petersburg. The front woman of the band Nadezhda Tolokonnikova reports that on Twitter. “There is a lack of freedom of art and freedom of expression in Russia.”

The police said the recording was stopped because the video would make propaganda for homosexuality and extremism. According to Pussy Riot, the song is about resistance against the Russian ruler and police violence.

Tolokonnikova says she was surprised when the police showed up at the shooting location. They were waiting for actors to play agents, but instead, real agents came to close. The police would have tried to stop the admission beforehand, but it failed. Pussy Riot has started a fundraising campaign to finish the video.

The band has been active since 2011 and became world-famous with performances and protests for women’s rights in Russia and against the policies of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Three members of the band, consisting of ten women, were sentenced to three years in prison in 2012. Among them also Tolokonnikova.
