Britain Russia Punks vs Putin
Supporters of the Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot protest outside the Russian Embassy in London, Friday, Aug. 17, 2012, as the verdict in their case is announced in Moscow. A Russian judge found three members of the provocative punk band Pussy Riot guilty of hooliganism on Friday, in one of the most closely watched cases in recent Russian history. The judge said the three band members committed hooliganism driven by religious hatred and offending religious believers. The three were arrested in March after a guerrilla performance in Moscow's main cathedral calling for the Virgin Mary to protect Russia against Vladimir Putin, who was elected to a new term as Russia's president a few days later.(AP Photo/Alastair Grant)
