Police in Russia stopped shooting of a brand new music video for a scandalous female punk rock band Pussy Riot using so-called ‘gay propaganda law’ in the country as an excuse for their intervention. Pussy Riot said in a statement that police accused them of “extremism” and of “making an illegal video” and had them removed from Lenfilm studio in St. Petersburg. They said that police insisted staff at the studio shut the power off not to let them finish the shooting. Lenfilm claimed that the police seen in recorded footage were actually actors. The band in turn claimed that if these were actors then they should have been given an Oscar for their acting skills. The band said they lost $15,000 as a result of the video shoot being shut down, and said the incident occurred because of Russia’s “absurd ‘gay propaganda’ law”. “We’ll be thankful if you share this info and/or be kind enough to help us to raise the money to make this video happen anyway,” Pussy Riot added.
