More anti Putin rallies


After a summer lull a large protest took place in Moscow against the election of President Vladimir Putin on Saturday. Those attending estimated the crown was around 100,000 whilst the police say that it was closer to 14,000. The real figure is likely to be somewhere in the middle.

There were smaller protests outside Moscow but the focus appears to have been on the capital. The protesters march was largely peaceful with a large police presence.
