Pussy Riot are on trial for “hooliganism” after performing an anti-Putin punk song in a Russian Orthodox cathedral. Their harsh treatment has resulted in them becoming an international cause célèbre. They will find out Friday morning if they have been sentenced to 7 years in prison.

Silverstone’s letter has met with cynicism on Twitter.
