La Russian Legal Information Agency (Rapsi) sta facendo una diretta (solo testo) del processo in corso alle Pussy Riot, il gruppo punk moscovita a processo per aver suonato e cantato nella chiesa del Santissimo Salvatore. Un “atto di blasfemia” perseguito duramente anche e soprattutto perché le Pussy Riot da sempre manifestano contro la legittimità delle ultime elezioni che hanno reincoronato Putin.Le ragazze, in carcere già da marzo, rischiano 7 anni di condanna.

MOSCOW, July 31 – RAPSI. RAPSI is hosting a live text coverage of the heavily anticipated Pussy Riot trial as it progresses.

The hooliganism trial of three members of Russian punk rock collective Pussy Riot began Monday in a Moscow court in a case that has attracted heated controversy worldwide.

Group members Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich remained in pretrial detention since their early March arrest for an incident that some have lauded as a valid exercise of free speech, and that others have lambasted as blasphemous. Group members face up to seven years in prison.

On February 21, five girls wearing brightly colored balaclavas stormed the altar of downtown Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral to perform an anti-Putin protest song entitled, “Holy Sh*t.”

Prosecutors have maintained that the Pussy Riot members “inflicted substantial damage to the sacred values of the Christian ministry…infringed upon the sacramental mystery of the Church… [and] humiliated in a blasphemous way the age-old foundations of the Russian Orthodox Church.”

Live transcript

14:52 Beloglazov abstains from working in the church since the incident took place. According to him, he is ready to forgive the Pussy Riot members, however he still has hard feelings. “I’m not seeking the most severe punishment for them, I just have reliance on justice and God” he said.

14:38 Beloglazov is explaining how the Pussy Riot performance occurred and how he tried to stop it. He explained, “They were dancing the cancan, waving their hands, and shouting swear words.”

14:24 The defense team’s motion for the judge’s disqualification was rejected once again. Sergei Beloglazov, the Christ the Saviour Cathedral security guard, has taken the stand as the fifth aggrieved party.
