Punk Band Given Two Years Over Anti-Kremlin Protest
MOSCOW—Three members of a once-unheralded feminist group—whose anti-Kremlin protest inside Russia's main Orthodox cathedral led to one of the most politically charged trials of the country's post-Soviet era—were convicted of hooliganism Friday and sentenced to two years in prison.
The diminutive provocateurs, in handcuffs, stood in a glass-enclosed pen in a Moscow courtroom as Judge Marina Syrova announced her decision, ratifying what critics of President Vladimir Putin call a growing crackdown on dissent.
