(Newser) – Pussy Riot's two-year sentence for "hooliganism" in Russia puts them squarely in the music world's spotlight today, and the group is taking advantage with the release of a new single. The Guardian has compiled a montage video of the trio and their supporters to accompany it. The title is "Putin Lights Up the Fires," and we'll just assume it's filled with anti-Putin sentiment, but so far, there's no translation available. Meanwhile, the BBC notes that former chess champ Garry Kasparov was among the protesters arrested in Moscow outside court.
