Russian punks Pussy Riot stormed Trump Tower in New York to voice their protest to the actions of US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladamir Putin.

Wearing their now iconic fluorescent balaclavas, Pussy Riot stormed 58-storey tower and unveiled a banner calling for a Ukranian film director Oleg Sentsov imprisoned in Russia to be released.

The scene caused the tower to be closed for around 3 minutes.

“We came to occupy Trump Tower to call attention to political prisoners. We believe that political prisoners and their protection are more important than the sexist bullshit that people have been focused on,” Pussy Riot said in a Facebook post.

“Defending political prisoners is an issue that transcends borders. We are acting in solidarity against leaders like Putin, who has exercised authoritarian force and Trump, who is displaying authoritarian tendencies – because we all need to be fighting together on behalf of dissidents everywhere.”
