More than 50 Ukrainians on Aug. 17 protested outside the Russian embassy in Kyiv, joining the wave of international protests as a court in Moscow sentenced three members of Russia’s notorious punk band Pussy Riot to 2 years in prison for performing a song in Russia’s main Orthodox cathedral critical of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
