Human rights watchdog Amnesty International has published a letter which states that 100 well-known musicians are asking Russian authorities for setting the participants of Pussy Riot free.

 

A year after the court’s verdict on Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova who have acted their punk-prayer in the Cathedral of Christ The Savior, world-class musicians have made a public statement supporting them. The musicians declare that they’re going to strive for the Pussy Riot’s freedom.

- Dear Masha and Nadya! Unjust court verdict and your imprisonment have shocked many people. It has especially shocked your fellow artists, musicians and citizens all around the world including numerous parents who empathize the separation from your children. We understand how much the feelings could be hurt by that protest in church but we’re still calling for the Russian government to revise the harsh verdict so you could come back to your children, families and normal life, - says the petition, published on Amnesty’s website.

100 celebrities have signed the petition. Among them were such musicians as Björk, Madonna, Moby, Sting, Paul McCartney, Elton John, Adele, U2, Massive Attack, The Chemical Brothers and other famous people.
