Six group members of Pussy Riot (five women and one man) were violently attacked with horsewhips and pepper spray today by the Russian Cossack militia for performing under a sign advertising the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Donned in their infamous ski masks, Pussy Riot was violently attacked by a group of 10 Russian security officials just as they pulled out a guitar and microphone to perform.

Looks like Putin still has it our for the musical group, as this incident follows their release from prison in December and a recent detaining on Tuesday at the Olympics.

No one was arrested, but the whole scene was incredibly violent. Take a look at the onsite photos below to see how the scene played out.
