The protester, an activist of local women’s rights group
Femen, famous for its topless protests, was intercepted and led
away by security guards. The slogan “Kill Kirill” was written on
her back.

Femen said in a statement they were protesting against the
“illegal arrest” and “shameful trial” of the three members of
Russian female punk group Pussy Riot who derided President
Vladimir Putin in a protest in Moscow’s main cathedral in
February.

The women, who have been held in pre-trial custody for
almost five months, face up to seven years in jail on charges of
hooliganism for storming the altar in multi-coloured masks to
sing a “punk prayer” to the Virgin Mary to “Throw Putin Out!”
