Russian activist group Pussy Riot cameos in Chapter 29 of the Netflix political drama House of Cards. In the scene, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina face off with Russian president Viktor Petrov, a not-so-sly analog for Vladimir Putin. Check out the scene below.

Below is the video for Pussy Riot’s “Don’t Cry Genocide,” co-written and performed with the riot grrl band Le Tigre. The video also served as Chapter 29’s end credits.
