Pussy Riot guilty of hooliganism

Help

Three members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been found guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred at a court in Moscow.

Judge Marina Syrova said the women had "crudely undermined social order" during their action in February.

The women say their "punk prayer" was a political act in protest against the Russian Orthodox Church leader's support of President Vladimir Putin.
