Tolokonnikova said that in the great scheme of things this was not their trial but a trial of the Russian judicial system as a whole. “Christianity, as I understand it after studying the Old and New Testament, supports the search for the truth. Christ was with sinners not by a chance. He said that He is with those who stumble and that He forgives them. But we haven’t seen it during this trial. I think that the prosecution violates Christianity,” said Tolokonnikova, the first to speak. “Like Solzhenitsyn, I believe that words will crush concrete. We sit in a cage but we haven’t lost. Just like the dissidents did not lose. Disappearing in psychiatric wards and jails, they convicted the regime.”

“Many people say that our political gesture was correct, that we uncovered sores of this system, stirred up a hornet’s nest, which then rushed at us,” continued her final statement Tolokonnikova. “With each day more and more people realize that if this political system throws itself against three girls, who sang for 30 seconds in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, it shows that this political system is afraid of them.”

Maria Alekhina, who spoke second, said: “The authorities will blush with shame for a long time for this trial. A trial like this is simply not possible in a healthy society… Without the blessing of the patriarch we uncovered the visual image of Orthodox culture and protest, we declared that the Orthodox culture does not belong to the patriarch and Putin and might be on the side of protest and rebellion.”

“It is obvious that these young ladies do not deserve criminal prosecution. It is also clear that the church, soliciting for criminal punishment and for making it more severe goes beyond the scope of its powers and, most importantly, beyond its Christian nature. I am absolutely convinced that if Jesus Christ was in the position of the patriarch and in the position of the present day church he would act completely differently.”

Pussy Riot desecrated a building of a people who suffered genocide. Christians were a group targeted by Marxist USSR for genocide. 65 million people were killed in the Gulag extermination camps.

The Pussy Riot tries to go desecrate the church the persecuted people had rebuilt and call their victimization of a people who faced genocide, an "act of human rights". It is absurd and obscene beyond belief.

Imagine if they went to Auschwitz and urinated on the floor? Would that be "defended" by the ECHR Human Rights organization?

These violent vandal criminals attacked a persecuted group, Christians.
