According to The Telegraph:

Russian police detained a punk group called Pussy Riot on Friday after they performed a protest song criticising Vladimir Putin next to Saint Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow.

Eight members of an all-girl punk group called Pussy Riot wearing brightly coloured mini-dresses and balaclavas climbed over railings onto a stone platform next to the cathedral to sing a song called Putin Has P***** Himself.

Russian police stood by while the band performed the song before detaining all the members and taking them to the nearby Kitai-Gorod police station.
Four members were later charged with the non-criminal public order offences and disobeying police, carrying a maximum punishment of 15 days behind bars, according to one band member who uses the nickname Garadzha Matveyeva.

Putin’s party has drawn the ire of feminist groups for what they see as sexist policies and promotional stunts. And you though The Beatles’ rooftop concert was edgy.
