They trespassed by not just that...there is more in this story...

That they trespassed is the only thing that all observers can agree to without qualification, and the only thing they were not charged with.

Actually, they didn't trespass. They were invited in. They behaved in a way that was found unbecoming by the custodians and left when the custodians escorted them out.

Just like you're not trespassing if I invite you into my home and then throw you out for smoking in my living room. (And if they had been smoking in the cathedral, that would have been an outrage, because that actually damages the building. Not just believers' mental image of the building.)

I interpret this hooliganism charge as including trespassing.

Sure, and writing on the altar.

No, I think hooliganism in russian law encompasses some other charges that in other jurisdictions would be more specified.
