Russian Feminist Activists Admit Mistake to Protest in Cathedral

Moscow, July 30, Interfax - One of the Pussy Riot girls Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, charged with hooliganism for a punk prayer at Christ the Savior Cathedral, admitted that the action was an ethical mistake.

"The fact that we did not plead guilty in line with Part 2, Article 213 of the Russian Criminal Code does not mean that we are not ready to explain our actions and excuse for sorrows caused by our performance," a Pussy Riot lawyer Violetta Volkova said citing Tolokonnikova's appeal to the Khamovnichesky District Court in Moscow on Monday.

"My ethical assessment of the Pussy Riot prayer is as follows: our ethical mistake was that we allowed ourselves to hold the action in a church in this genre. But we did not even think that our actions could be insulting to anyone," Tolokonnikova said.
