(L) Gera, Pyotr and Yoko (R) Nadia & Pyotr (Willy Wanka')
Yoko Ono awarded the Russian punk band Pussy Riot this year's LennonOno grant for peace. Ono presented the award to Pyotr Verzilov, the husband of Nadia Tolokonnikova - one of three jailed members of Pussy Riot, sentenced to two years in prison for performing a song mocking the Russian President Vladimir Putin inside Moscow's main cathedral. "It's a terrible thing that all three girls have been jailed for not doing anything wrong. They were just standing for freedom of speech," Ono said at a ceremony in New York. * AP

So, Yoko represents universal "FREEDOM & EQUALITY".

Why is the "sane" Russian public masturbation freak celebrated and free to collect awards while the insane American public masturbation freak was shamed and arrested?

So, Pussy Riot are peaceful feminist artists, and freedom activists.
Why does the western media fail to mention the "band's" connection to, Marat Gelman, Alexei Pluster-Sarno and VOINA?


By Israel Shamir, THE TRUTH SEEKER on August 22, 2012
Organizer of the PR, Marat Gelman, a Russian Jewish art collector
Universally admired, Pussy Riot (or PR for short) have been promoted as superstars. But what are they? A rock or punk group they are not. A British journalist marvelled: they produce no music, no song, no painting, nada, rien, nothing. How can they be described as “artists”? This was a severe test for their supporters, but they passed it with flying honours: that famous lover-of-art, the US State Department, paid for their first ever single being produced by The Guardian out of some images and sounds.  
We are able to stomach obscenity and blasphemy; I am a great admirer of Notre Dame de Fleurs by Jean Genet, who combined both. However, the PR never wrote, composed or painted anything of value at all. Chris Randolph defended them in Counterpunch by comparing them with “the controversial Yegor Letov”. What a misleading comparison! Letov wrote poetry, full of obscenity but it still was poetry, while the PR have nothing but Public Relations. 
Hell-bent on publicity, but artistically challenged, three young women from Russia decided – well, it sounds like a limerick. They stole a frozen chicken from a supermarket and used it as dildo; they filmed the act, called it “art” and placed it on the web. (It is still there) Their other artistic achievements were an orgy in a museum and a crude presentation of an erect prick
Even in these dubious pieces of art their role was that of technical staff: the glory went to a Russian-Israeli artist Plucer-Sarno of Mevasseret Zion, who claimed the idea, design and copyright for himself and collected a major Russian prize. The future PR members got nothing and were described by Plucer as “ambitious provincials on the make”, or worse.
Lately they have tried to ride on a bandwagon of political struggle. That was another flop. They poured a flood of obscene words on Putin – in Red Square, in subway (underground) stations – with zero effect. They weren’t arrested, they weren’t fined, just chased away as a nuisance. And they did not attract the attention of people. It is important to remember that Putin is an avowed enemy of Russian oligarchs, owners of the major bulk of Russian media and providers of the Moscow literati, so they print on a daily basis so much anti-Putin invective, that it’s lost its shock value. You can’t invent a new diatribe against Putin – it has been already said and published. And Putin practically never interferes with the freedom of the press. 
My foreign journalist friends are usually amazed by the unanimity and ferocity of the anti-Putin campaign in Russian media. It can be compared with the attacks on G W Bush in the liberal papers in the US, but in the US, there are many conservative papers that supported Bush. Putin has practically no support in the mainstream media, all of it owned by media barons. A valuable exception is TV, but it is expressly apolitical and provides mainly low-brow entertainment, also presented by anti-Putin activists like Mlle Xenia Sobtchak. So PR failed profoundly to wake up the beast. 
Eventually the young viragos were mobilised for an attack on the Church. By that time they were willing to do anything for their bit of publicity. And the anti-Church campaign started a few months ago, quite suddenly as if by command. The Russian Church had 20 years of peace, recovering after the Communist period, and it was surprised by ferocity of the attack. 
Though this subject calls for longer exposition, let us be brief. After the collapse of the USSR, the Church remained the only important spiritual pro-solidarity force in Russian life. The Yeltsin and Putin administrations were as materialist as the communists; they preached and practiced social Darwinism of neo-Liberal kind. The Church offered something beside the elusive riches on earth. Russians who lost the glue of solidarity previously provided by Communists eagerly flocked to the alternative provided by the Church. 
The government and the oligarchs treated the Church well, as the Church had a strong anti-Communist tendency, and the haves were still afraid of the Reds leading the have-nots. The Church flourished, many beautiful cathedrals were rebuilt, many monasteries came back after decades of decay. The newly empowered church became a cohesive force in Russia. 
As it became strong, the Church began to speak for the poor and dispossessed; the reformed Communists led by the Church-going Gennadi Zuganov, discovered a way to speak to the believers. A well-known economist and thinker, Michael Khazin, predicted that the future belongs to a new paradigm of Red Christianity, something along the lines of Roger Garaudy’s early thought. The Red Christian project is a threat to the elites and a hope for the world, he wrote. Besides, the Russian church took a very Russian and anti-globalist position. 
This probably hastened the attack, but it was just a question of time when the global anti-Christian forces would step forward and attack the Russian Church like they attacked the Western Church. As Russia entered the WTO and adopted Western mores, it had to adopt secularization. And indeed the Russian Church was attacked by forces that do not want Russia to be cohesive: the oligarchs, big business, the media lords, the pro-Western intelligentsia of Moscow, and Western interests which naturally prefer Russia divided against itself. 
This offensive against the Church began with some minor issues: the media was all agog about Patriarch’s expensive watch, a present from the then President Medvedev. Anti-religious fervour was high among liberal opposition that demonstrated against Putin before the elections and needed a new horse to flog. A leading anti-Putin activist Viktor Shenderovich said he would understand if the Russian Orthodox priests were slain like they were in 1920s. Yet another visible figure among the liberal protesters, Igor Eidman, exclaimed,“exterminate the vermin”- the Russian Church – in the rudest biological terms 
The alleged organiser of the PR, Marat Gelman, a Russian Jewish art collector, has been connected with previous anti-Christian art actions which involved icon-smashing, imitation churches of enemas. His – and PR’s problem was that it was difficult to provoke reaction of the Church. PR made two attempts to provoke public indignation in the second cathedral of Moscow, the older Elochovsky Cathedral; both times they were expelled but not arrested. The third time, they tried harder; they went to St Savior Cathedral that was demolished by Lazar Kaganovich in 1930s and rebuilt in 1990s; they added more blasphemy of the most obscene kind, and still they were allowed to leave in peace. Police tried their best to avoid arresting the viragos, but they had no choice after PR uploaded a video of their appearance in the cathedrals with an obscene soundtrack. 
During the trial, the defence and the accused did their worst to antagonize the judge by threatening her with the wrath of the United States (sic!) and by defiantly voicing anti-Christian hate speeches. The judge had no choice but to find the accused guilty of hate crime (hooliganism with religious hate as the motive). The prosecution did not charge the accused with a more serious hate crime “with intent to cause religious strife”, though it could probably be made to stick. (It would call for a stiffer sentence; swastika-drawers charged with intent to cause strife receive five years of jail). 
Two years’ sentence is quite in line with prevailing European practice. For much milder anti-Jewish hate talk, European countries customarily sentence offenders to two-to-five years of prison for the first offence. The Russians applied hate crime laws to offenders against Christian faith, and this is probably a Russian novelty. The Russians proved that they care for Christ as much as the French care for Auschwitz, and this shocked the Europeans who apparently thought ‘hate laws’ may be applied only to protect Jews and gays. The Western governments call for more freedom for the anti-Christian Russians, while denying it for holocaust revisionists in their midst. 
The anti-Putin opposition flocked to support PR. A radical charismatic opposition leader, the poet Eduard Limonov wrote that the opposition made a mistake supporting PR, as they antagonise the masses; the chasm between the masses and the opposition grows. But his voice was crying in the wilderness, and the rest of the opposition happily embraced the PR cause, trying to turn it into a weapon against Putin. The Western media and governments also used it to attack Putin. A Guardianeditorial called on Putin to resign. Putin called for clemency for PR, and the government was embarrassed by the affair. But they were left with no choice: the invisible organisers behind PR wanted to have the viragos in jail, and so they did. 
Commercially, they hit jackpot. With support of Madonna and the State Department, they are likely to leave jail ready for a world tour and photo ops at the White House. They registered their name as a trade mark and began to issue franchises. And their competitors, the Femen group (whose art is showing off their boobs in unusual places) tried to beat PR by chopping down a large wooden cross installed in memory of Stalin’s victims. Now the sky is the limit. 
In August, vacation season, when there is not much hard news and newspaper readers are at the seashore or countryside, the PR trial provided much needed entertainment for man and beast. Hopefully it will drop from the agenda with the end of the silly season, but do not bet on it.

After studing the artists and works supported by Marat Guelman, Alexei Pluster-Sarno and VOINA, one would dare to profess, with certainty, that artistic freedom of expression is alive in Russia. What extremist artists/activists and their collectives are revolting for is justification to represent, endorse and in some cases commit acts of intolerance, misogyny, violence, fecophilia, zoophilia, pedophilia and necrophilia.

Universal freedom is being able to wave your hands in the air. It is not the right to slap any man, woman, child or beast, living or dead as you see fit. One's freedom should end where another's begins lest unlimited dexterous freedom unleashes oppression's sinister limitations.

The VOINA Art-Group («WAR») ACTIONS 2006-2012

Plucer Live Journal: 2012-01-02 01:19:00
Voina activists climbed over the fence to the yard of the police station No.71 in St. Petersburg to hold an auto-da-fe for a police prisoner transport truck. The prison-on-wheels was set on fire with Molotov cocktails and totally burned down. Oleg Vorotnikov, Leonid Nikolayev, Natalia Sokol and other activists took part in the action. Cops didn't succeed in arresting any of them.
Alexei Plutser-Sarno's statement: "*Dear Russians, this action is a modest gift to all of you from the Voina Group. It's a gift to all political prisoners of Russia: Philip Kostenko, Sergei Udaltsov, Taisia Osipova, Sergei Mokhnatkin, Vladimir Bukovsky and many others. We dedicate this action to the deceased heroic political prisoners Sergei Magnitsky, Anatoly Marchenko, Kronid Lyubarsky, Alexander Ginzburg, Andrei Sinyavsky, Yuri Galanskov, Yuli Daniel. Let's destroy all prisons! Freedom to all political prisoners! Feds don't fuck us - we fuck feds! Happy New Year, comrades!*"

On the night of June 14th, 2010, on the Che Guevara birthday, Voina painted an enormous phallus on the Liteiny drawbridge in St Petersburg several minutes before it started rising.
The Voina activists poured the paint from the cans, while running from the bridge security. It took them only 23 seconds to create the gigantic Dick. Since there was nothing the guards could do to stop the bridge from opening, at 1 a.m. the phallus – 65 m tall, 27 m across, weighting 4000 tonnes– slowly erected just opposite the headquarters of the KGB's successors, the Federal Security Service. It could be seen from everywhere in the center of St Petersburg. Three Voina activists were beaten by the bridge guard; one of them, Leonid Nikolayev, was arrested.
Alex Plutser-Sarno, the Voina activist, defined the genre of the action as a “sketch in the open air” or a “street sketch”. Alex proclaimed that the Dick was turned on not only by the main KGB office, but by the whole hierarchy of power in Russia. And it also was a protest against the heightened security measures expected at the International Economic Forum, held from June 17 in Saint Petersburg, the hometown of both Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin.
The Dick graffiti was a monumental “Fuck you!” to the Russian corrupted authorities.

Russia’s shock/protest art group Voina takes it to the next level of WTF with their latest action, “How to Snatch a Chicken: A Tale of How One Cunt fed the Whole of the Group Voina.” Now picture that in the most literal and unhygienic way possible… Yup.While their previous actions like the Giant Galactic Space Dick-ing of a St. Petersburg bridge were eloquent acts of political vandalism, it’s been all cockroaches and food fights with them, recently. Most recently, in honor of their hero, a 19th century political philosopher/prisoner, Voina’s president’s wife dubbed “Vacuous Cunt With Inconceivably Huge Tits,” smuggled a chicken out of a grocery store in said “Vacuous Cunt.”See the extremely NSFW video below (and photos here). First, the troupe searched for a large and fresh enough chicken. Then, the store isles and CCTV cameras were blocked by the members of the group holding up banners with “FUCK WHORING YOURSELF!” smeared on them in I-don’t-want-to-know-what. The blockade allowed Vacuous Cunt to promptly stuff and smuggle the poultry out of the store, which was then presumably cooked and eaten.…So are they still a performance art group or a XXX version of Jackasss?

Included in their anti-government actions are a “public orgy” in the national museum of biology in a room full of stuffed bears, where several men anally penetrated their female partners in a position of submission, including one heavily pregnant women, as a metaphor to “bugger/fuck Medvedev”. “Medved” means “bear”, hence all the stuffed bears – this was meant to be symbolic, artistic and revolutionary according to the activists. Here the male anarchists literally used women as dead bodies or receptacles through which to make a political point to other men. Violating women as a means to offend other men is nothing else but an age-old patriarchal mechanism – behind which the intended target are us, for men to bond over our annihilation.


CYANOMOD LIVE JOURNAL, Mar. 9th, 2012 at 2:41 AM
"In 2009, Hope Tolokonnikova hounded out of the art group "War" (Voina) with the words "for the provocation and the surrender of the activists to the police." Even these perverts (Voina) did not stand mindless behavior girl (Hope). Here's what they write about expelled Tolokonnikova and Peter Verzilova named "Peter-pidorok" on the official website:

31 Dec 2010, 0:00
Pyotr Verzilov, who was expelled from Voina in 2009 for ratting out other Voina members to the police (, is now using his fake Twitter account ( to publish statements on behalf of the group. Those statements appear to be a provocation aimed at increasing the severity of charges brought against Voina. For instance, the following tweet was posted before the prime minister’s visit to Higher School of Economics:

“Is there anyone inside the HSE building right now who could make a successful attempt on Putin’s life for the purpose of terminating his political activity?”

Pyotr chose to post this tweet on behalf of Voina despite knowing that Twitter accounts and blogs are being monitored by the police in search of evidence for criminal prosecution. The tweet, which calls for Putin’s assassination, does not jeopardize Pyotr in any way. At the same time it gives the prosecution grounds to charge the arrested Voina activists Oleg Vorotnikov and Leonid Nikolaev under article 277 of the criminal code. If convicted under that article (which is quoted verbatim in the tweet) they could face life in prison.

Voina would like to officially state that it has no connection to the impostor Twitter account gruppa_voina, which is being maintained by Pyotr Verzilov. The same can be said of the LiveJournal account which has been used by Verzilov to discredit the group by publishing fake news about Voina actions that never happened.

The group’s only official information outlets are:

1. on the web: (English:,
2. on Twitter:

The incriminating tweet was far from the first of Pyotr Verzilov’s provocations. For instance, he had used his reputation as a Voina activist to gain trust among members of anti-fascist and anarchist movements. He then filmed activists’ faces during their storming of the Khimki city administration in July 2010, later publishing the video on the internet, which led to arrests. In order to further discredit the group, the published video was titled “a video filmed by Voina members” (see for instance

Verzilov did not participate in any of Voina actions of 2010 (Liteyny Dick, Bucket Man, Palace Revolution and others). Despite not having been involved in them in any way, he has claimed authorship in a number of interviews. Such claims are an outright lie and a blatant attempt to use the group’s name for personal promotion."


"Russian freedom movement needs international support"


SPIEGEL: The Voina movement split in 2009, and there have been bitter accusations against you since then. There are claims that you posted videos of Voina activists on the Internet which led to their arrest.

Verzilov: Those are all lies -- brutal, old lies. It was a very nasty breakup at the time. We divided into two factions, the St. Petersburg and Moscow groups, because there were too many artistic differences. Both groups still call themselves Voina, hence the confusion. Our former colleagues from St. Petersburg keep sending around strange reports that no one believes

SPIEGEL: How did Pussy Riot come about?

Verzilov: Pussy Riot was a direct response to a decision by (former President and current Prime Minister) Dmitry Medvedev not to run for reelection (as president). It was on Sept. 24, 2011, the day it became clear that the regime has no interest in change and only knows one direction: more authoritarian control. For 15 women, including Nadezhda, it was a wakeup call to do something and plan direct campaigns. The first videos appeared on the Internet only a few weeks later.

SPIEGEL: Who came up with the name?

Verzilov: These are collective decisions. The name is a reference to the Riot grrrl movement that arose in the United States in the early 1990s, based on a concept of feminine strength, not weakness. It sounded odd in Russia, and even the Western mainstream media has problems with it. Until recently, no English or American newspaper would have printed the word "pussy."

VOINA'S CALL FOR BOYCOTT: Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art will feature counterfeit Voina works!

FREE VOINA 17 Sep 2011, 23:31
The project team listed Voina as one of the participants but this was done against our will! Moreover, this exhibition will feature counterfeit and fake works, which have no relation to us, as well as works that were stolen from Voina while members of the group were in prison. In November 2010, during the arrest of Voina leaders Oleg Vorotnikov and Leonid Nikolaev, all documentation of recent Voina actions was stolen. The theft was conducted by Russian cops (namely, the anti-extremism department ‘Center E’, created to suppress the opposition and free artists in Russia). Prior to that, the entire physical and electronic archive had been stolen by provocateurs Petr Verzilov and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova. While Voina leaders were in prison, these individuals were busy spreading misinformation in the media (including foreign media), calling themselves the leaders of Voina and claming authorship of such actions as Dick captured by the FSB!, The Palace Revolution, Leo the Fucknut is our President, How to Snatch Chicken and others.

In May 2010, Verzilov and Tolokonnikova broke into the garage which housed Voina archives and took everything.


BURDMMXII August 21 2012

It's wrong to make accusations without facts. However, suspicion is raised about the origin of Russian PUSSY RIOT/VOINA II'S concept (2011) after reading about Pyotr and Nadia's thievery and  false claims of authorship of intellectual property owned by VOINA. How creative, using the the same name as your former ally turned opposition.
PuSsY RiOt

This is the original PuSsY RiOt, An Italian feminist group founded in 2004. They sound good, like a mixture of Fuzzbox and Motorhead. Lightyears ahead of their Russian namesake because they are an actual BAND OF MUSICIANS.

LUISA* Drums
KATERINA* Guitar/Screams
Genre: Alternative/Grunge
Location: Termoli/Bologna, IT

Facebook: PuSsY RiOt
Myspace: PuSsY RiOt

So, PUSSY RIOT'S plagiarism is art, incrimination, deception and violence is peace, misogyny (public buggery) is feminism and freedom of expression isn't alive in Russia.

Why are PUSSY RIOT/VOINA II revolting?

Every source reveals the same thing – shameless opportunists seeking publicity at any cost. The three arrsted members are lucky to sit in the gulag for only two years minus time served. They will exit jail as international feminist pop icons. Not a bad outcome for a band that had been together for four months, had six songs and were unsigned before their infamous arrest . Why a REVOLTING GLOBAL PUSSY RIOT!?


"Pussy Riot" are not punk rockers. They are US State Department-backed instruments of corporate-financier hegemony, used as leverage against a Russian government standing in the way of Wall Street and London's order of international corporatocracy. The punk culture, ironically represents the antithesis of such an international order - ironic indeed that so many have superficially defended "Pussy Riot" as targeted "punkers" when substantively they are "poseurs."


Suzanne Nossel 
Yoko Ono and Suzanne Nossel of Amnesty International U.S.A. awarded the 2012 LennonOno Grant to PUSSY RIOT. Pyotr Verzilova, husband of member Nadia Tolokonnikova, accepted the peace prize on their behalf. The toxic collective rejected by intolerant, violent,  misogynist, anarchists "WAR" a.k.a. VOINA for "mindless behavior" are now obvious tools of American propaganda.
"In a U.S. context, we tend to see these two sets of rights (freedom of religion and freedom of expression) as intertwined: A core element of the right to speak one’s mind includes the ability to espouse and practice whatever religious beliefs one chooses."
- Suzanne Nossel, Bureau of International Organization Affairs, Deputy Assistant Secretary of State

So, Yoko Ono & Suzanne Nossel believe that PUSSY RIOT exemplify peace. 

Is Yoko supporting a clandestine PR agenda for the U.SState Department that attempted to deport John Lennon? Why? 

WANTED: John Lennon's Fingerprints Lifted By FBI

By Terri JuddTHE INDEPENDENT - UK - Friday 08 October 2010
John Lennon may have had a chequered history with the FBI, but 30 years after his death one might have thought the agency would have lost interest. Two days ago a small Manhattan memorabilia shop was raided by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security agents who seized a set of the singer's fingerprints which were due up for auction. 
Signed fingerprint card, made at a police station on May 8 1976
Lennon was under FBI surveillance in the early 1970s for anti-war activism, but that ended with the J Edgar Hoover era in 1972.
One previously confidential 1972 document on the FBI site, from an investigation into intelligence that Lennon had contributed $75,000 to a group planning to disrupt the Republican National Convention, reads: "Source advised that Lennon appears to be radically orientated, however he does not give the impression he is a true revolutionist since he is constantly under the influence of narcotics."


Ironic. The U.S. Government once condemned Lennon and Ono for promoting radical philosophies of UNIVERSAL PEACE & FREEDOM. Now, Yoko invokes John's spirit, assists global mass media majiks that spin Neo-Hippy Princesses out of the mindless Baba Yaga (Russian Banshee) spawn of VOINA a.k.a. "WAR".
