A diplomat at the Russian embassy in Washington, D.C. downplayed protest rockers Pussy Riot’s demonstrations and complained about “Russia haters” and support for LGBT rights in emails sent to an American counterpart, according to Buzzfeed reporter Rosie Gray.

“Generally, I am of the opinion that those p*ssies are simply not happy in their sexual life. And that makes them riot,” the unidentified diplomat wrote in one 2012 message. “They simply need a good f..k, not SIZO. Unfortunately, we don’t have such a capital punishment in our criminal law.”

“SIZO” is a reference to Russian pre-detention centers, which was brought up after the Russian official compared arguments surrounding the band — which gained international support after being arrested that year for its performance outside a Moscow cathedral — to Aurora, Colorado mass shooting suspect James Holmes.

“Life is strange — kill 12 people in a movie theater, and you are a psyco [sic] boy, maniac,” the Russian wrote. “Show your ass in a nation biggest cathedral — and they will call you a prisoner of conscience.”

“It’s hard to be a prisoner of conscience without being in prison,” the American, who was also unidentified, responded. “Not saying their performance wasn’t offensive or even illegal, but fines for trespassing would be a little more ‘European’ than the SIZO … and I don’t understand your point on the Aurora shootings.”

The Russian diplomat also reportedly sent emails last year decrying “homosexual authoritarism [sic]” regarding the country’s anti-LGBT laws, including one including a link to an op-ed in Politico criticizing Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) for vetoing SB 1062 and calling it “a good piece on Arizona buzz.”

“You studied USSR to know your enemy,” the Russian wrote. “Now the only way to make Russia a living is to help hating it – be it Vladimir Putin or human rights. Actually I was thinking about homosexual authoritarism [sic] threatening America.”

In another message, the Russian credited former Soviet Union leader Joseph Stalin with bringing Russia to “its highest,” saying he paved the way for the country’s eventual launch of cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin into space.

“Yes he kinda f*cked Russia, but Russian soul is feminine by it’s nature,” the diplomat said of Stalin. “So I believe we need to step back and look at him in a longer perspective, like the French did with Napoleon. It’s complicated like so many things in Russian history.”
