What Alekhine said that would be happy to read them personally, but she did not have such an opportunity. The defendant asked an altar boy there took their apologies. “I received them,” – quoted Tsyganyuka “Interfax”.

According to the victim, it serves as an altar boy from childhood, and in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior performs these duties during the year. The man told the court that, seeing how the girls are jumping on the pulpit, he was upset. Altar boy refused to bring a claim for material damage inflicted on the moral and asked the court to adopt a fair decision.

But the guard of the temple of Christ the Savior, also testified at the trial, said that because of the performance Pussy Riot long time to recover. “For 10 years, have never seen such a temple. I was just in a daze … Because of all this, I could not have two months to go to work”, – said Sergey Beloglazov.Odnako the victim said he did not hold a grudge against the defendants: “I am as a believer is ready to forgive and not hold them evil. I think they did not know what they are doing,” – said the guard.

In general, the second day of what is happening in the Khamovnichesky court is frightened observers who watched the proceedings on the first broadcast, and when it banned – for text translations. In the media community and caring among the increasingly appear similar assessment: “Middle Ages”, “obscurantism”, “Inquisition” and the like.

For example, a few quotes from the online broadcast of “Novaya Gazeta”.

Paul Zhelezov altar boy describes how one of the girls, having escaped from him, began to be baptized. Judge: “She was baptized, like all citizens are baptized?” Iron: “I do not remember exactly. But in fact baptized parody, satire. People need to be baptized with reverence, not quick. She was baptized once abruptly. This is not the sign of the cross, which should be a bower Orthodox Christians.”

Volkov’s lawyer asks Zhelezova: “The values ​​of Christianity is forgiveness?” Iron – the judge: “Respond?” The judge nodded. Iron: “Every believer should strive to be able to forgive.” Volkov: “Can you forgive?” Iron: “I try.”

A little later, the lawyer, Mark Feigin asks questions of the temple guard Sergei Beloglazova: “What are the instructions for CHOP” Bell “in the event of vandalism at the temple?” Answer: “The arrest of the offender and to convey to the police.” “Why did you let the girls?” “I would not let go, and passed into the hands of another member of the …” Of further dialogue revealed that the girl did not seem too dangerous security guard: “But if an icon torn, we will deliver to the police, or Kashchenko …” Immediately the question Feigin: “That is, from your point of view, the violation was not significant?” Judge screams “The question is cleared!” simultaneously with the attorney Beloglazova that to something said: “According to article 51 of the Constitution, you do not have to testify against himself!”

Sergei Vinogradov, zamglavnogo Energy Fund Cathedral of Christ the Savior: “I saw an absolute outrage to the people solea: jumps, waving that is – with his hands, and in late fall to their knees. I was able to share with another person one of the representatives who were on solea, grab your left hand. He took off his cap on his head – was Alekhine, Maria. to protect pereprovodil and returned to his duties. I watched 15 seconds of action, but time is relative. Sometimes it is more significant than an hour. This gathering on Bald Mountain, and not statement. They violated the moral and ethical standards of art. offended my senses. Apologies do not accept. insincere They are prepared for the court! ”

The next victim – Tatiana Amoz, “Picker donations”: “One bowed back to the altar, the priest showed the altar and the altar – the Lord”.

All of these remarks, indeed, there is little relevant in a legal state of the XXI century, the blogosphere is also often compared to the process of “parasitism” Brodsky in the 60s. In samizdat widely dispersed recording of Frida Vigdorova with this process. Many things there, who have become quotations, really resonate with the transcripts of the Khamovniki court. Another popular comparison – records of the interrogations of Giordano Bruno.

“Ethical” admission of guilt are asked not to be confused with the “criminal”

Recall the day before the first day of proceedings on the defendants’ lawyer read out a statement Volkova Violetta defendant Tolokonnikova Hope. On behalf of the group, she apologized to the believers, which offended the feelings of speech Pussy Riot in the Temple. His guilt is not recognized activist, noting however that this does not mean that they are not prepared to explain their actions and do not recognize the error.

“My assessment of the punk ethic Pussy Riot prayer is this: our ethical mistake was that we allowed to bring the genre we are developing an unexpected political punk performances in the temple. But we did not think then, that for some of our actions are an insult” – said in a statement Tolokonnikova.

“If someone was offended by our performance in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, then I am ready to admit that we made an ethical mistake. This is a bug, because conscious intention to offend anyone, we did not have,” – noted in a statement.

“Our ethics, stress – an ethical, rather than the Criminal Code, the wine is in the fact that we allowed ourselves to respond to the call of the patriarch upset us to vote for the policies of Vladimir Putin” – read by counsel.

As noted in the document Tolokonnikova from October 2011, she and her fellow member spoke in various places of Moscow and all their actions are perceived, “with humor, cheerfulness, at least – with irony.” For this reason, the girls “did not anticipate that punk performance could seriously hurt someone or hurt,” assured by the treatment.

According Tolokonnikova, performance in the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour “was not committed on the grounds of religious enmity and hatred, just as there was not our hatred of a social group of Orthodox believers.”

Meanwhile, lawyers have felt apology “fatal mistake” defense. Chairman of the Bar Association of Russia “For Human Rights” Evgeny Arkhipov, in an interview with RBC daily, suggested that the court may take this as an indirect admission of guilt, and taking into account this circumstance, the maximum sentence the girls to date. According to the lawyer, activists should not have to apologize to the faithful, as they had no intention to offend them with his action.
