MOSCOW — Pussy Riot later produced a video that added footage of a previous performance in a smaller church and dubbed in the soundtrack. This video, which became an Internet hit, was what most angered Russian Orthodox believers.
Tolokonnikova appealed to Russians for understanding:
"I don't consider myself guilty. But again I ask all those who are listening to me for the last time: I don't want people to be angry at me: Yes, I'm going to prison, but I don't want anyone to think that there is any hatred in me."
The court refused the defense lawyers' request to take into consideration that Tolokonnikova and Alekhina both have a young child.
