In today’s high-paced media environment, yesterday’s footage of Russian security officials in traditional Cossack headgear whipping members of Pussy Riot (below) has already made it into the activist group’s latest video, “Putin Will Teach You How to Love.” The art-media-activist cycle keeps getting faster and faster.

The video comes with a hefty Russian description that highlights with a clear message about their political agenda:

Freedom to all political prisoners on the May 6 case, to the environmentalist Evgeny Vitishko and all other political prisoners! See you at the Zamoskvoretsky court in Moscow on February 21 at 12.00 — when the judge will start to read the sentence for the May 6 case.
