Well, mostly everybody.

The US, EU and rights groups have condemned jail sentences imposed on three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot over an anti-Vladimir Putin protest in a Moscow cathedral.

The women were sentenced to two years in prison for hooliganism.

The US and EU said the sentences were disproportionate. Amnesty International said they must be overturned.
