Russian band Pussy Riot has released a new video which shows free members of the feminist punk band setting fire to pictures of President Vladimir Putin,and vowing to continue their fight.

Three members of the group were jailed last month for a ”punk prayer” they performed on the altar of Moscow’s main cathedral,calling on the Virgin Mary to rid Russia of Putin.

According to Sky News,the latest video features other members of the collective abseiling down a wall,in what looks like a Russian setting,before burning a picture of the strongman President.

”We’ve been fighting for the right to sing,to think,to criticise,” the members said in the video.

“To be musicians and artists ready to do everything to change our country. No matter the risks,we go on with our musical fight in Russia,” they added.

According to the report,the group also thanked their supporters.

“Thank you Madonna,thank you Red Hot Chili Peppers,thank you Bjork,thank you Green Day… Thank you to all musicians,activists and everyone around the world who have stood up together to fight for our right to be free,” they said.
