In Russia freedom of speech is huliganism

Pussi Riot performed a song in a church with critic against Putin and was now sentenced to 2 years of jail. The sentence is saying that the girls had planned to show hate against the believers, according to DN.se.

I just want to say that one should be able to have oppinions about politicians anywhere. In a democracy freedom of speach should be a right. So is Russia considered to be a democracy after /before this incident with Pussi Riot? What do you think?

Don’t you understand huliganism? Look it up on the wikipedia-link below. There you find one definition of it. I don’t think that Pussy Riot levels up to the definition there.

  1. You are somewhat naive. Freedom of speech does not rely on you being able to say and do anything in a church. Then – of course – 2 years in prison because of what they did is ridiculous. Just throw them out of the church. Thats enough.

  2. I feel so proud of Russia today!
    We are traditional people! We are not feminists or homoliberals!
    We are not western world!
    And we are happy! 🙂

  3. Rose, you are entitled to your oppinion, not sharing your oppinion is also allowed. Ana, I am glad you are sharing your happiness for an archaic approach where homofobia and inequality is considered happiness. Others are entitled to another point of view that considers a normal happy life to be a life where everyone is equal no matter what looks, native language, cultural background, gender, political point of view or if they are are homo-, bi- or heterosexual.
