The violence and oppression HAS to stop!
Russian punk band Pussy Riot has released ultra graphic and heart-wrenching footage of what they endured during their visit to the 2014 Sochi Olympics.
Two of the leaders were just freed from an almost two-year stint in prison, but that didn't stop them from once again standing up to their president, Vladimir Putin, with peaceful protest performances outside the games.
Evidently though, the prez doesn't like to be criticized!
Actually, Putin's Cossack regime was so peeved by their presence that they used a horsewhip to lash them when they tried to perform under the Olympic sign.
So much for his promise that everyone will be safe during the games!
The short political music video, titled Putin Will Teach You How To Love The Motherland, includes song lyrics like, “Sochi locked down/the Olympus under surveillance/Of guns and crowds of cops.”
But you don't need to speak the language to see that SERIOUS change is needed in the Russian government.
Ch-ch-check out their powerful protest (above)!!!
