Pussy Riot, is a band, who made headlines about two years ago, after being arrested while filming a video for an anti-Putin song in a cathedral.

The band was sentenced to two years imprisonment in a penal colony for their crime.

It’s so small that one grain of rice seems gigantic in comparison — and it’s so sensitive that its transmission LED could instigate currents in its circuits.”
