Pussy Riot Releases New Video (with English-language subtitles)

In what appears to have caused an apparent split in the ranks of the punk collective, a new Pussy Riot video provided by the band to RFE/RL has the masked punk rockers lashing out at the oil industry, Igor Sechin, the head of Russia’s largest oil company Rosneft, and others.
 
In other Pussy Riot news, a video game was showcased at a recent Russian Orthodox youth festival in Moscow that encourages players to "kill" members of the band. "Don't Let Pussy Riot Into The Cathedral" features guitar-wielding women in balaclavas assaulting a Russian Orthodox Church who can only be fended off with a cross.
