Russia: Erotic art museum attacked in capital city
Moscow: The administration of the museum on which yesterday the attack was carried out again, informed that a group of conservative Christian activists continued their spell of attacks on the Museum of Erotic Art here.

The activists, who appeared shortly after midnight on Tuesday, wielded a brick and threatened the manager, who fled fearing for her life, said Alexander Donskoi, a curator of the museum also known as "Tochka-G" or "G-Spot".

He said the group criticised the museum for advertising in the streets, allowing gays to attend and supporting punk band Pussy Riot, three members of which were jailed this month over an anti-Kremlin "punk prayer" at an Orthodox Christian church.

However, the stunt's organiser, Dmitry Enteo, told that the activists just came to preach at the "disgraceful place". "Little ones see their leaflets and ask their parents what a G-spot is. We couldn't tolerate it," said Enteo.

He said that no threats were involved and the brick was a reference to the capstone for a better life mentioned in the Bible.

Some staffers left the museum during the sermon, but they were likely driven by shame, not fear, said the 23-year-old Enteo, who studies economy and theology at two different colleges in Moscow.

A short silent video from a surveillance camera showed the activists walking into the museum and studying the items on display. They have a brick with them and are accompanied by a man with a professional camera, but make no menacing gestures.

This is not the first such attack by Enteo and his supporters. Last week, he and a friend ripped a pro-Pussy Riot T-shirt off a man at Moscow's Paveletsky train station.

On Monday, he and several supporters stormed a play based on the Pussy Riot trial at Moscow's Teatr.doc theatre.

At Teatr.doc, the group was accompanied by a media crew, a pro-government channel known for its scathing propaganda attacks on the Kremlin's opposition activists.

The channel made no public statement on the story. No spokespeople of the Orthodox Christian Church were available for comment.
