Gaining global notoriety in 2012 when three of the groups members, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich were imprisoned for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" for their preformance inside Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, a protest directed at the Orthodox Church leaders' support of Putin during his election campaign.

In March 2014, Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova founded Zona Prava, an organization that defends prisoners' rights.
