For the release of an activist, Brigitte Bardot wrote to Vladimir Putin

It is in a missive directly addressed to the Russian head of state Brigitte Bardot asked, last Friday, the release of Victoria Pavlenko, an activist of the animal cause.

She does not need anyone, whether she is - or not - in Harley Davidson. And for good reason: in order to free activist Victoria Pavlenko, "persecuted for rescuing dogs in distress" and sentenced to a year and a half in prison for stealing a guide dog she thought lost, Brigitte Bardot did not hesitate to send an open letter to Vladimir Putin.

Saying he was attached to Russia, the national icon wanted to share with the president of the country feeling of injustice in the judgment of the animal rights activist.

A call to the dog-loving man

"To act for the welfare of animals is not not a crime but a duty ", recalls the pasionaria of the animal cause in his letter to the head of state. And while begging him to release the prisoner, it is "the president and the man whose heart does not remain cold and indifferent to the suffering of animals, dogs in particular" , that she make a call to fix what she considers "an injustice"
