A Russian court Web site has been defaced following a verdict that saw the all-female punk rock band Pussy Riot sentenced to two years in jail.

The Khamovnichesky District Court was hacked today by a group claiming to be affiliated with the U.S. branch of Anonymous. The site uploaded a message in Russian saying that it doesn’t “forget” or “forgive.” The group also posted a Pussy Riot song, called Putin Is Lighting the Fires of the Revolution, and video of Bulgarian singer Aziz.

Pussy Riot band members were arrested in March after performing a “punk prayer” in Moscow’s main cathedral, requesting the Virgin Mary save Russia from president Vladimir Putin. A judge last week sentenced all three members to two years in prison for their alleged dissent. The arrest and subsequent sentencing has lit a firestorm across the world over individual rights in Russia. Many “hacktivist” groups have come out in support of the band.

Last week, one of those groups, Anti Leaks, took action in its distaste for the Pussy Riot handling, taking down Russian news site RT.com with a DDoS attack.

Pussy Riot band members were found guilty of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.”
