Pussy Riot Members Attacked…in a Russian McDonalds

Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina, who may or may not be members of Pussy Riot (there’s some dispute), are still stirring up shit at home in Russia.  While in a McDonald’s in the city of Nizhny Novgorod, they had green paint and trash thrown at them.

I don’t have a translation for this video, but according to an article in The Guardian, the two claim that the attack was instigated by Russian police and that they both suffered chemical burns.
