After learning from PETA that Maria Alekhina, a member of the protest band Pussy Riot, collapsed from malnutrition during a recent court appearance, actor Alicia Silverstone fired off a letter to Russian President Vladimir Putin asking that he show consideration regarding the jailed rocker’s vegan diet.

In the letter, Hollywood sweetheart and vegan cookbook author Silverstone asks Putin to make plant-based foods available to not only the imprisoned Alekhina but also all Russian prisoners.

“Regardless of the trial and its outcome, I’m sure you can agree that everyone has the right to show compassion and refrain from harming animals by being vegan”, wrote Silverstone.

“We hope Putin will give serious consideration to Alicia’s request”, says PETA Associate Director Mimi Bekhechi. “PETA and Alicia stand ready to help Russian authorities plan nutritious, inexpensive vegan meals for all inmates.”
