“We are calling on our friends and supporters, parliamentarians of free countries, and culture figures to support our nomination of lawyers Feigin, Polozov and Volkova for the Nobel Peace Prize,” a handwritten copy of the letter signed by the convicted Pussy Riot women posted on a site supporting Pussy Riot says.

In their letter, the Pussy Riot activists reiterate that they consider their lawyers to be politicians. “Many people say that our lawyers are not lawyers, but politicians. That is true. It can’t be other wise politically,” the letter says.

The letter also states that the lawyers defended the Pussy Riot activists “openly, making every moment of the disgraceful trial public, despite the risks to their reputation and safety.”
