Cars Circle Central Moscow in Anti-Putin Protest

Thousands of cars flying white ribbons or balloons circled central Moscow on Sunday in a show of protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. More protesters stood along the side of the road waving white ribbons and flags as the vehicles passed, their horns blaring.

Putin is running in a March 4 presidential election to reclaim the post he held from 2000 to 2008. He is expected to win, but is under pressure to show he can win fairly.

The protest movement has been driven by young professionals, cultural figures and other members of the urban middle class, many of them connected through online social networks.
