Popular English singer Sting stepped up for the detained members of the Pussy Riot punk-band. The 60-year-old called for the release of three women in a statement published on Amnesty International’s website. Sting, currently on tour in Russia, said that dissent is a legitimate and essential right in any democracy, and that modern politicians have to tolerate this fact.
Sting joined an array of performers and public figures who opposed Pussy Riot’s continued detention. The Red Hot Chili Peppers and Franz Ferdinand also expressed their solidarity with the band during their Sunday concerts in Moscow.
Three members of Pussy Riot were arrested in March following an incident at Moscow’s Christ the Savior Cathedral in February. Three women, with their faces covered, yelled a song criticizing the church and the government.
