A “March of millions” protest Vladimir Putin's government in Moscow

Politics Moscow, Russian Federation - 06 May 2012

An anti-Vladimir Putin protest on May 6, 2012 in Moscow, ended in violence with demonstrators fighting with police after some did not stick to the agreed-on route. At least 250 out of the thousands marching were arrested, including Segei Udaltsov, left radical group leader, and Boris Nemtsov, the opposition leader, along with popular blogger Alexei Navalny, according to Moscow police.

Their demonstration exuberantly denounced Vladimir Putin, the nation's current prime minister who will begin another six-year term as president.

As they marched, many chanted slogans like this: "Russia without Putin!" and "Putin is a thief!"

Many of the protestors didn't follow the route to Bolotnaya Square that their leaders agreed to with Moscow authorities. They marched to the front lines where police were ready in riot gear. There they stood and refused to move until they were forced to do so.

Our contributor wrote: Thousands of people gathered in downtown Moscow for the so-called 'March of Millions' on Sunday to protest the May 7 inauguration of Vladimir Putin. Participants are marching from Kaluzhskaya Square down Yakimanka Street to Bolotnaya Sqaure.
