"Pussy Riot" sounds like a Bond Girl. Or, at least, it did until the Queen became a Bond Girl. But in fact, it is the name of a "feminist punk rock collective" of apparently grown women who nevertheless call themselves a "feminist punk rock collective" by the name of "Pussy Riot".
Such are their look-at-me antics that they are in fact a criminal conspiracy, and at last someone has insisted that they be treated as such. Specifically, Patriarch Kirill of Moscow has so insisted. The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, which they have defiled, was previously demolished on the orders of Stalin in order to make way for a swimming pool.
Its restoration embodies the restoration of Holy Russia, pre-eminent among the Slavs in their age-old mission of defending the true Western civilisation that is the recapitulation in Jesus Christ and His Church of all three of the Old Israel, Hellenism and the Roman Empire, at least as much against the godless, rootless, usury-based, stupefied, promiscuous pseudo-West as against anything else.
That pseudo-West would seem to be summed up perfectly by this "Pussy Riot". Or are they demonstrating against the reversal of Stalinism? If so, then they are in line with the only viable political alternative to Putin and Medvedev, the totally unreconstructed Communist Party of the Russian Federation, notable for its Soviet flags at demonstrations.
Banners on which British reporters cannot bring themselves to comment, any more than on the equally ubiquitous black, yellow and white of Russian ultranationalism in all its anti-modern, anti-urban, anti-scientific and anti-Semitic awfulness. Russian ultranationalism in opposition to the present Russian Government. Have you got that?
If it is not those, then it is the Caucasian Islamists. Or else the National Bolsheviks, whose flag is that of Nazi Germany, but with a black hammer and sickle in place of the swastika. The National Bolsheviks are much loved by the BBC, and especially by Belarus-hating, but Uzbekistan-loving, Newsnight. Well, of course they are.
