Moscow - The song sung by the Pussy Riot punk singers was blasphemous from the point of view of the Orthodox Church, Judge Marina Syrova said while pronouncing the sentence handed down to the punk trio. 

"Once on the solea and ambo, Tolokonnikova instantly connected the microphone to the sound-reproducing equipment and switched on the record of a song, the content of which, from the point of view of the Orthodox Church, is blasphemous and insulting to believers and for priests," Syrova said.
