They also slam Putin for the recent anti-gay legislation he signed into law.

The band performs on an oil derrick and at one point, even pour oil over a portrait of Rosneft chief, Igor Sechin.

Last fall, Pussy Riot members Maria Alyokhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, convicted in August 2012 on charges of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” following a performance critical of president Vladimir Putin, were moved to remote prison camps within the country.

They were arrested in March 2012 staging an anti-Putin performance in Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral in February.
