The Russian-based activists unfurled a banner Tuesday night, which according to reports resulted in the Tower being shut down for half an hour.  The punk band, whose members were famously imprison by Russian President Putin, hung a banner with the name of an imprisoned Ukranian filmmaker to protest the treatment of political prisoners.

The band later posted the video and a message to Facebook. They wrote: “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 bulls— that people have been focused on.”

The banner said “Free Senstov,” referring to Ukranian filmmaker Oleg Senstov who is currently in prison in Russia.
