The ex-Beatle joined other high-profile musicians including
Madonna and Pete Townshend of The Who in calling for clemency in

“I would like you to know that I very much hope the Russian
authorities would support the principle of free speech for all
their citizens and not feel that they have to punish you for
your protest.”
