Who the hell is Pussy Riot, you ask? If you’re behind on the trial, ANIMAL is here to simplify it for you, via a pictogram style poster.

Pussy Riot group action/performance protested Kirill the Patriarch of All Russia and his old buddy President Putin, Kirill’s holy endorsement of Putin for president and their shared corruption. Sources say that after the girls’ arrest, Kirill called Putin personally to take the case “seriously” and publicly condemned the girls to Hell. For crashing a key Eastern Orthodox Church and flailing about for 40 seconds, the girls could be imprisoned for “hooliganism with the intent to incite religious hatred” for three years. The music in this clip – Punk Prayer asking the Virgin to “become a feminist” and “chase away Putin” — was punched in later.
