MOSCOW, December 4 (Itar-Tass) —— Yekaterina Samutsevich,one of the Pussy Riot punk group convicted for an act of hooliganism staged at the Christ the Savior Cathedral in Moscow, has appealed a resolution earlier passed by the Moscow Zamoskvoretsky district court which recognized "extremist” the Pussy Riot videos, spokeswoman for the Moskvoretsky District Court Yevgenia Pazukhina told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
She confirmed that the court received Yekaterina Samutsevich'appeal in which she asked to repeal a resolution passed by judge Marina Musimiovich as” illegal and unsubstantiated," as Samutsevich claims.
On November 29 the Zamoskvoretsky district court ruled that four videos of Pussy Riot punk band, including performance in Russia's main cathedral, on Red square, on the roof of a building in Moscow and during a trolleybus hijack show, were extremist and ordered to remove them from all websites.
Three members of the band were found guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred earlier this year. Two of them received two-year sentences while the third, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was given a suspended sentence.
