Pussy Riot Member Appeals Internet Ban on the Group's Videos

One of the members of the Pussy Riot punk band has appealed the Russian court ban on internet videos of the group’s songs and stunts that were deemed as extremist.

The court has received the appeal submitted by Yekaterina Samutsevich, who seeks to cancel the decision to recognize the punk group’s videos as extremist as this decision is unlawful and unfounded,” the press secretary of the Zamoskvoretsky District Court has told reporters.

It is expected that the court will not accept the appeal as officials told Samutsevich that she could not appeal the ruling on the video ban because it concerns the internet providers and state watchdog, not the owners or suppliers of illegal content.
