Pussy Riot Trial Begins

Listen

The trial of three members of Pussy Riot, a Russian feminist punk band began today. They are facing seven years in prison for performing an anti-Putin "Punk Prayer" in a cathedral in Moscow. The prosecutor in the case has appeared on Russian television displaying a Canadian Permanent Resident ID and Ontario Health Card belonging to Pussy Riot member Nadezhda Tolokkonnikova (right). Nadia's husband, Peter Verzilov, spoke to Brent back in May about how her connection to Canada has been spun by Russian authorities.
