Overview

5 November, Cosmopolite: Pussy Riot

Iconic Russian punk activists return to Oslo

It has been ten years since Pussy Riot stormed into The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour in Moscow without warning, protesting against the Putin regime and the support it received from the Russian Orthodox Church. The activist punk rock collective had already done a number of similar guerrilla performances - but this time it caught fire. The incident led to the arrest of three of the band's members. It made Pussy Riot one of the most visible opponents to the Russian regime around the world.

Ten years have passed and the field of battle has expanded. In addition to early protests against Russian gay-propaganda laws, the group has, among other things, focused on the conditions of prisoners in Russian prisons, where several members speak from experience. They have addressed the political situation in other countries, such as the United States under Trump, but it is still Putin's regime and its consequences that remain at the heart of the project. We have seen this, for example, in the aftermath of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

When Pussy Riot perform concerts today, their opposition to the war is vocal. Part of their income goes to a children's hospital in Kyiv.
