it was a protest, bit extreme maybe, but still a protest

(against Putin and his regime fwiw, you know? like you said yourself? all the other stuff going on? i cannot believe i'm having to spell this out actually!)

other people are having their homes raided, their computers confiscated, being jailed and having there assets seized

no one is even talking about that, all we are hearing about is these people that chose to go and desecrate a house of worship.
they're protesting against exactly the issues you're talking about deep, and getting locked up for it basically - it's censorship and a clamp-down on anti-government criticism - that's why there's such an uproar about it...

like the article says, it's just the tip of the iceberg...

Pussy Riot is the tip of the iceberg – 'there's a lot of intimidation going on' | World news | guardian.co.uk

Femen said the “Trash Prayer” was a “warning” to President Putin and Patriarch Kirill that Femen would come after “the jerks responsible for their [Pussy Riot’s] suffering with a chainsaw.”
I'm sure they're quaking in their boots.

I read an article about "the Kony-ification of Pussy Riot" last week, which this item could've fit well into.

I see no difference between the west and the east. Both regimes are oppressive.

The war shilling propaganda during the Bush years was worse than anything I've seen from the Putin government.

I find this kind of equivalency absurd.

“I am Chelsea Manning. I am female,” the Army private wrote in a statement read on TODAY Thursday. “Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition.”
