From Russia, without love

The riot was shushed, but not silenced, today in a Russian court.

Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29, also known as the members of Pussy Riot, were found guilty of "hooliganism" by a Russian court today. The judge in the case stated that their actions -- performing a punk prayer in a cathedral -- was essentially a plot "to undermine civil order, motivated by religious hatred. [...] In other words, a grave violation of public order."

The three women exchanged smiles while the judge read the verdict. 

Tolokonnikova spoke through her lawyer via Twitter, stating, "Politically, I am furious. Our imprisonment serves as a clear and unambiguous sign that freedom is being taken away from the entire country."

The three of them await sentencing.
