There have been protests and calls on Russia to free jailed members of the Russian feminist punk group Pussy Riot from many corners of the world. The three were sentenced to two years in prison earlier this week over their critical remarks against Russian President Vladimir Putin.

At least one appeal has also been made in Iran, if the author of a photograph creating a buzz among Iranians is to be believed, in the form of graffiti at the gate of the Russian consulate in Isfahan.

Persian Letters could not verify the image's authenticity.

But this picture of a protest sign is making the rounds on social media among Iranians and opposition members who have been critical of Russian support for the Iranian establishment.
