The judge in Khamovniki court has read the psychology and psychiatric reports made to the Pussy Riot member. They say the accused were sane during their "punk prayer" in the Christ the Savior cathedral but they suffer from "complex personality disorders", Interfax news agency reports.
In the report, doctors said that Nadezhda Tolokonnikova has "a complex personality disorder displayed through her activist stance, and desire for self-realisation." They reported that Tolokonnikova was self-assured and has a tendency to voice her opinion emphatically.
Ekaterina Samutsevich was diagnosed with "a complex personality disorder" displayed through persistence and emphatically voicing her opinion. Doctors also noticed that the Samutsevich has "a low emotional sensibility" and "a tendency for deviant behavior."
Medics also characterized Maria Alekhina as having "an impulsive character with an overstated self-esteem, inclined to protest and suicidal blackmail."
