Nadezhda “Nadia” Tolokonnikova and Maria “Masha” Alyokhina
are the brave, recently released members of Pussy Riot who have made headlines around the world for standing up to Russian President Vladimir Putin, and spreading the dismal truth about their Russian government.
New footage shows Russian cossacks attacking the girls with whips, pepper-spray and last but not least — their fists — during a set-up for one of Pussy Riot‘s non-violent protests at a public plaza in Sochi. We’re not sure they could have asked for a better backdrop to highlight the attacks, as the Sochi 2014 logo hovers in the back the entire time. Check out the disturbing (NSFRussia) attacks below.
