A Moscow court has ordered Russian internet providers to block videos by Pussy Riot, calling them “extremist” and seeking to incite “mass disorder”.

“To me this is a clear attribute of censorship — censorship of art and censorship of culture — of the protest culture that is very important for any country, let alone for Russia,” Pussy Riot member Yekaterina Samutsevich told reporters after the court decision was handed down.

“Now of course the fact that they will be blocking all Pussy Riot videos as I understand, all photos, this is horrible. Naturally, I will lodge an appeal and I will try to do it today.”
