Three members of the band p*ssy Riot have been convicted of hooliganism and sentenced to two years in jail. The judge says they will serve the time. They can appeal the sentence within ten days.

Already, outside the courtroom, people are protesting and have been arrested.

RT.com is updating info at the link we provide here.

Some of the updates include:

14:28 GMT: Prominent Russian opposition activist Aleksey Navalny called the sentence a "demonstrative extermination of justice." He claimed that the motive behind the sentence was the fact that p*ssy Riot's actions at the cathedral were political, Interfax reports.

14:20 GMT: The US Embassy in Russia criticized the p*ssy Riot verdict on Twitter, calling it disproportionate, Interfax reports.

14:14 GMT: Amnesty International calls the p*ssy Riot sentence a "bitter blow to freedom of expression in Russia."
