One of Russia's most infamous rappers has been sentenced to 10 days in jail for mocking police.
Ivan Alexeyev, aka Noize MC, taunted police as "animals" at a concert in the southern city of Volgograd on 31 July.
His song Kuri Bambuk includes the lyrics: "Citizen! Halt. Halt. Turn out your pockets, slap, slap. Now your kidneys, kick, kick. Well off you go. Forget it, swallow it, be silent."
"They [the police] did not like this song," a spokesman for the rapper said.
