MOSCOW - The defense lawyers for the Pussy Riot activists will complain the European Court of Human Rights about the way the Pussy Riot trial was organized in the Moscow Khamovnichesky Court.

"In the course of these two weeks, we witnessed torture and regular inhumane treatment of the defendants. They were deprived of sleep, deprived of normal food, and were belittled" lawyer Violetta Volkova said in the Khamovnichesky Court on Tuesday.

"This will also be evaluated by the European Court of Human Rights," Volkova said.

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.
