Russia: Egyptian Graffiti Artist on Freedom for Pussy Riot

Egyptian political activist and graffiti artist Ganzeer writes [en] about the Pussy Riot case: “[...] the consequences of freeing Pussy Riot may be mistaken for a fair and liberal Russian judiciary system, which is clearly not the case. [...] Pussy Riot's actions are all about exposing the reality of Russia's corrupt regime. By demanding the freedom of Pussy Riot, the band's supporters are harming the very integrity of their mission. [...] Asking for Pussy Riot's freedom is easy, but taking Putin out is where it's at.”
