Amagansett resident Paul McCartney is urging leaders in Russia to free the band Pussy Riot, who are in jail for an anti-Putin prank that they pulled. The all female band have been in jail for the last 5 months.

McCartney wrote a letter to the female band to stay strong and asked authorities to allow the band their freedom of speech.

Other Hamptonites have also shown support for the band, including Madonna, who lives in Bridgehampton.
