Putin did the right thing. This people are not musicians. This band is also financially supported by the US. The whole thing is just a propaganda media campaign by the west in my opinion against Putin. It has nothing to do with freedom of expression. Jelzin opened all the doors in the 90th's and Putin not. These three women serve their enemy and aren't aware of it. Putin is a good president.

that is the goal of this media campaign. to complain about russia and its politics through putin and not to complain about the bigger and real important problems. at the same moment the media are against julian assange and doesn't inform the people about the law in sweden about rape (here is no freedom of speech because this is against wikileaks and this is way more important, than 3 girls, who would have breoken the law in germany too, and who in my opinion need this 2 years to start using their head) but they are not against pussy riot and complain about putin.
