maggoo: I'm sure Putin didn't pulled strings to make their life in prison a living hell.
spawn73: Putin is probably pulling strings to make their stay in prison easier if anything. He probably also tried to get them a lenient sentence.

He probably also tried to get them a lenient sentence.Father Gapon, is that youI don't get that reference. But never the less, that's probably what happened.Putin likely disliked the case as a whole, and especially the attention it caught abroad. Thus he'd be interested in a mild sentence.Like Putin would give a shiat about some random punk chicks making a nuicance of themselves. What they farked up, was doing it in a church. We have to assume they picked a church, precisely because they figured that would get them the attention they so thought (after being ignored on all the other occasion. You can google them, and their previous antics.Apparently "According to their co-founder, Pussy Riot is "part of the global anti-capitalist movement, which consists of anarchists, Trotskyists, feminists and autonomists."" and "Pussy Riot had stated "The Orthodox Religion is a hardened penis / Coercing its subjects to accept conformity", among other examples of the group's antagonism to the Church as an organization, which it views as corrupt."My bolds.Blasphemy is illegal in Russia. And that's what they got arrested and charged for. Yeah sure, they dislike Putin as well (obviously), but the western media seems to be blinded with that fact, as it suits their narrative better than if Putin actually wished they'd just been released.
