Verzilov was one of four members of Russia's Pussy Riot protest group imprisoned for 15 days for organizing an invasion of tone during the World Cup final.

His intrusion into the pitch at Moscow's main stadium in front of President Vladimir Putin and other high-ranking officials marked a rare security breach in the weeks-long football tournament organized by Russia.

The group said the trick, which kept the game only briefly, was intended to promote freedom of expression and condemn the policies of FIFA, the world governing body of football.

The four invaders of the court were imprisoned for 15 days for the trick and were banned from participating in sporting events for three years.

The four members were Veronika Nikulshina, Olga Pakhtusova, Olga Kurachyova and Pyotr Verzilov.

The organizers of the tournament said that the commissioners who could not stop the intrusion would face disciplinary action.
