They should indicate at the beginning of each of their social media posts that they are “customers” but they will not follow the rule, and they will go to court.

The Russian Ministry of Justice has updated its list of “foreign agents” to include two members of the activist pop-punk band, Nagizda Tolkunnikova and Nika Nikolina, as well as journalists and other public figures – BBC writes.

“Foreign media agents” are required to register and submit detailed reports on their activities and funds every six months. All content they publish (including social media posts) must include a long message indicating that they are “foreign agents”.

Pussy Riot responded that it would appeal the decision in court and that its posts would not be classified.

On February 21, 2012, Pussy Riot performed before the iconostasis at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. The title of the song performed here is Our Lady, Annoy Putin! (Богородица, Путина прогони!) was. The performance, and the video about which was shot, received an ever greater resonance, toured the world press, and became a sensation on major television stations of the world. Three members of the group were immediately arrested for inciting riots and religious hatred.

Nagyezda Tolokonnyikova and Marija Aljohina were released on December 23, 2013, following a law passed by Parliament to release those convicted of minor crimes, minors and mothers with young children in the run-up to the Winter Olympics.
