On Monday, three members of Russian feminist punk-group Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in prison for hooliganism based on their critical remarks against Russian president Vladimir Putin and Russian Orthodox Church patriarch Kirill I. The international outpouring of subsequent protests over their sentence has highlighted the fine line between government censorship and artistic expression.
