Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"The Cologne ones were "charged with disturbing a religious service" which is not what Pussy Riot did."

Yes, it is the same:

Section 167
Disturbing the exercise of religion
(1) Whosoever
  1.  intentionally and inappropriately disturbs a religious service or an act of religious worship of a church or other religious association within Germany or
  2.  commits defamatory mischief at a place dedicated to the religious worship of such a religious association
shall be liable to imprisonment not exceeding three years or a fine.
(2) The ceremonies of an ideological association within Germany shall be equivalent to religious worship.


Sentence (2) fits both PR and the copycats.
