Yevgeny Chichvarkin intercedes for Pussy Riot girls

Former co-owner of the Evroset company, Yevgeny Chichvarkin, has interceded for the Pussy Riot girls who are standing trial on hooliganism charges.

"A person mustn't be deprived of freedom for singing or dancing," Chichvarkin, who currently resides in London, said in a live video address to participants in the Seliger-2012 youth forum on Thursday. His address was broadcast on a large screen installed at the one of the forum's pavilions. Chichvarkin was wearing a T-shirt depicting two church-shaped face masks referring viewers to the scandalous concert staged by the Pussy Riot punk band in the Church of Christ the Savior in Moscow.
