A. Zhukov: "Vlad, the Olympics are coming and everybody hates us! WTF, do something!"

Vladimir: "Do you think that if I stop with that Pussy Riot thing, people will love me again?"

A. Zhukov: "Damn you're right! Sure they will! Just continue with the faggots, OK?"

Vlad: "OK!"

A. Zhukov: "Vlad, you're awesome"

Vlad: "No! You are..."

A. Zhukov: "No, you..."

The Russian government drafted an amnesty for prisoners in order to honour the 20th anniversary of Russia's post Soviet constitution. The amnesty says that "Those who haven't committed violent crimes, first time offenders, minors and women with small children" are granted amnesty from their imprisonment.

This unexpected act of mercy freed not only Pussy Riot's members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina - both young mothers of 24 and 25 years old- but also 30 Greenpeace activists arrested after their protests about the Arctic oil drilling.

It's Christmas, Facebook and the television say that you must be good and little Vlad is behaving himself accordingly. He's not waiting for Santa to come on the morning of Christmas but from tourists coming to Russia on the occasion of the Sochi Winter Olympics. The complaints about Russia from the Russian and the international communities weren't enough for a boycott of the event, but you can see the fear of the administration for this event to become an epic fail.

Violations of human rights like those Tolokonnikova reported in her letter from the Penal Colony No 14 in the Mordovian village of Parts must be punished. Just days after that letter was posted, she disappeared for 21 days during a prison transfer, showing up in a Siberian prison hospital. Vlad also stated that the amnesty has nothing to do with Pussy Riot - don't even dare to think that: "I was not sorry that they ended up behind bars," he said. "I was sorry that they were engaged in such disgraceful behaviour, which in my view was degrading to the dignity of women."

Vladimir Putin - defender of the dignity of all women, gays or anybody supporting the freedom of speech - is still hurt by Pussy Riot's performance of "Punk Prayer: Mother of God Drive Putin Away" at Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral on February 21, 2012. This performance was the reason for the group's members to be arrested, accused of being guilty of "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred or hostility" and spend most of this year behind bars: shame, shame, shame.
