19 December 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

First of all, this is not a "musical punk group". No one ever heard any song from them, except maybe their ridiculous performance in the Churh. Let's quickly recall all their public so called "performances":

1. Public sex in a botanical museum, which was video taped and uploaded to the internet. If you google it, you still have a good chance of finding it. I believe the team was call "Gruppa Voina" at that time.And if I'm not mistaken, they celebrated Medvedev's presidency in such a way. Tolokonnikova was 9 month pregnant at the time.

2. Other members of the team carried out a frozen chicken in their vaginas out of a grocery store. Kids and other people were present. videotaped and uploaded to the internet.

3. Tolokonnikova and others hang by neck in a grocery store several mannequins representing visual minorities (people of Asian background). Public was present in the store. Again, "the performance" was videotaped and uploaded.

4. And of course, the famous performance in the beautiful Christ the Savior Church. Usually people are required to be quiet and decent in this place. Yet they cursed, jumped, etc. I'm surprised that visitors didn't beat and kick them out. If it hadn't happened in Moscow but in some rural church, that would have been the most probable outcome.

If it's art, or "political protest", then I'm from Mars. It's good that finally they were stopped before they did something even more outrageous. And if they haven't learnt the lesson - well, Mr. Putin is not going anywhere any time soon.
