Pussy Riot Say Russian Police Shut Down Video Shoot, Citing “Gay Propaganda”

Pussy Riot says Russian authorities stormed a shoot for its new music video citing charges of "gay propaganda" and extremism.

According to Pussy Riot, the police shut off the electricity for the rest of the day at the studio, Lenfilm, to prevent the group from finishing production of the video, which included 150 women and LGBTQ activists. Authorities also allegedly prohibited the group from bringing in a generator to restore power.

“We lost $15k on the video production today,” the group writes, “because of the absurd ‘gay propaganda’ law, and 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.”
