Rather than discuss the impolite behavior of judges, lawyers Pussy Riot is “to look at ourselves,” said Taratukhin.

After all evacuees had returned to the courtroom, the court proceeded to question witnesses. Total charges announced 10 witnesses – two men were questioned yesterday, three of them to testify today.

The first speaker was the cleaner of the Epiphany Cathedral in Yelokhovo Elena Zhukova, who spoke about the performance, held Pussy Riot in the Cathedral of February 18 – three days before a similar action in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior. Then, the incident has not received wide publicity, and representatives of the Orthodox Church told about it until March, when they were detained by Alekhine, and Tolokonnikova Samutsevich. As it turned out later, footage of performances in the cathedral Elohovskom were inserted into the video about the “punk-prayer service” at HHS. Girl playing the guitar is in Yelokhovo.

Prosecutor to question whether it is orthodox believer, Zhukov replied in the affirmative. The woman told the girls were in striking masks. They set up a microphone and lighting apparatus and began to dance. According to the witness, who cites RAPE, “It was insulting.”

Maria Zhukova remember Alekhine. She claims that she was dancing on the stairs, and she took it well. The clothes the girls witness called normal for the church – they were in long sundresses, no exposed body.

When asked the court why the church can not be masked, Zhukov said that the specific rules do not know – in her opinion, it is “of course”, said rape. As summarized witness, her religious feelings were offended by the fact that the girls danced, wore masks and tried to install the equipment.

On Thursday, the court also questioned the father of Catherine Samutsevich. Questions prosecutor, was whether his daughter is registered in the mental health center or drug treatment, whether she had severe head injuries, outraged Stanislaus Samutsevitsa. He said that was nothing like this, and asked such questions remain about his daughter not to ask.

As the RAPS, Samutsevich became the first man, who the prosecutor during the testimony did not clarify religious views. Questions about the interests of his daughter and her relationship with the father of modern art Pussy Riot participants refused to answer.

According to Stanislav Samutsevicha, his daughter had been arrested just for refusing to cooperate with the investigation. He claims that after the arrest of Catherine the investigators told him that she was grabbed on the way to the altar. The girl is really going to take part in the action, for that she went to church, but did not rise to the altar. According to the father, this version is also confirmed by recording from security cameras that he was shown.

The witness said that Catherine baptized, the family observed Easter and Christmas, and she attended church. According to Stanislav Samutsevicha, what is happening around Pussy Riot “totally inadequate” deed girls. He believes that the church and the power of provoking a split in society.

Assessing the “punk moleben”, which involved his daughter, Samutsevich reminded the court about the tradition of buffoonery in Russia.

Text online broadcast from the process and the site has “New newspaper”. Judging from the post of special correspondent, the prosecutor asked his father Samutsevich considers whether he permitted dancing, singing in church and shouting slogans like “Holy shit,” to which he just replied that clowning is permissible. A question about admissibility of masks countered by the fact that the head is covered.

Stanislav Samutsevich also told the court that his daughter was not involved in any social organization, but the Pussy Riot the first time he learned only after her arrest.

Informal conversation turned into an interrogation

Toward the end of the interrogation of his father, the prosecutor asked to announce the testimony given Samutsevichem under investigation. There are answers to questions that he refused to answer in court, having the right not to testify against her daughter. Defense objected, but the judge, as always, agreed with the prosecutor.

As a result, an informal conversation with the investigator turned to the testimony given during the interrogation. They imply that Tolokonnikova, according to his father Samutsevich, pulled his daughter in a so-called feminist movement. He even said that her daughter was the zombie. Now, the witness asked not to believe this testimony, because he did not know what it is questioned, and his words have no legal force.

Samutsevich said he would writs in relation to defamatory publications about his daughter.

One of the supporters Pussy Riot police detained

According to RAPS, even before hearing the police detained around Khamovniki Court came to support one of the defendants. Guard on duty in front of the order told that the man was arrested “for insulting a police officer, that is me.”
