pussy whipped putin

Having contrived to get themselves horse-whipped by some of Putin's cossacks yesterday, Pussy Riot's Sochi 2014 themed video for Putin Will Teach You to Love the Motherland is out there already. The lyrics with helpful annotations can be found on The New Republic.

Meanwhile, two members of the Ukranian Olympic team just quit, abandoning Sochi "in solidarity with fighters on the Maidan barricades" (via @markmackinnon).

There was also some discussion punted into the long grass of 'Agenda 2020' at this morning's IOC press conference about Ukranian team members wishes to wear black armbands in recognition of the Euromaidan death toll (via @andymiah).

But of course the Olympics aren't political!
