Russian oil industry new target Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot - Like a Red Prisonby Charlie Crooijmans

Two members of the Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot are serving a two years sentence, but it doesn’t stop the band to keep on criticizing Putin. On the contrary, they just released a new video “Like a red prison” with the Russian Oil Industry as a new target. In the video they dance on an oil pipe and throw oil at a picture of Igor Sechin, chairman of state oil giant Rosneft.  Putin is compared to an Iranian ayatollah and the Roman Catholic church to the United Arab Emirates.

One member of the collective said after the video’s Tuesday release that “the main message is that Putin has spread the country’s wealth among his friends” (The Age). It’s not only the oil that triggers Pussy Riot’s rage but the anti-gay legislation as well. In the video they yell like, “Homophobic reptile – get out of history.”
