The final of the 2018 World Cup in Russia left a party that will remain in memory for the conquest of France of its second World title, after beating Croatia (4-2) on Sunday in Moscow; nevertheless, one fact did not happen below the table in which the group of activists and punk music, Pussy Riot, was linked.

This group was accredited the action in which four people dressed in a police uniform entered the field during the game, in an action that surprised more than one having broken the iron security system imposed by the Russians throughout the World Cup, especially in the final.

This action, among other things, was conceived with the intention of paying tribute to Dmitri Aleksandrovich, a Russian writer, and poet, a critic of the Soviet Union, who died 11 years ago. “Prigov created the image of the Militarist in Russian culture, the portrayal of the status of a celestial State,” the group said in a statement.

The group rose to fame in 2012, although they formed as a group in 2011, when they held a protest against the re-election of President Vladimir Putin, upon entering the Cathedral of Christ the Savior of Moscow, a Russian Orthodox church , and make the sign of the cross, immediately after trying to interpret a song. After a few seconds, they were stopped.

The action on Sunday had a great impact on social networks where one of the images that traveled the world shows one of the activists clashing hands with the French player, Kylian Mbappé, who scored a goal in the match and ended up being awarded as the World’s Best Young Player.

The four activists who entered the camp were arrested and spent the night in prison. On Monday they were sentenced to 15 days of house arrest.
