U.S. singer Madonna performs during her concert at the Olympic Stadium in Kyiv on Aug. 4.

Despite being very late, she seemed to have won over her fans of all generations. In Moscow, where she performed on Aug. 7, Madonna made news. During her concert, she displayed the words “Pussy Riot” on her back. The gesture came in support of the three feminist Russian rockers being tried on charges of hooliganism. In February, they performed a “punk prayer” in opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral. Madonna said that she supports freedom of speech and hopes that the judge will show leniency. A verdict in the case is expected on Aug. 17. (AP)
