Russian punk band Pussy Riot has finally started trial this week. They were thrown in jail after screaming "Virgin Mary drive Putin away!" at Russia's Christ the Savior Cathedral.

Pussy Riot is known for their impromptu and anonymous shows pointing out the injustices of the political system. Their February performance, at the altar of Moscow's largest church, resulted in jailtime for three of the band members.

The three members pleaded not guilty to the charges of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred or hostility." The trio defended their actions, saying their performance was solely directed at Putin. They chose to chant the "prayer" at a church, to symbolize the church's inappropriate involvement with Vladimir Putin. If they are found guilty, they could face seven years in prison.

Pussy Riot's political statement has split the Russian people; those who are in support of the band, those who think it's an embarrassment to the country. Many are keeping a close eye on the outcome of this trial because of its implications on the political power of president Putin.
