Putin Defiant After 100,000 Rally Rocks Moscow

The protests were triggered by widespread claim of election fraud which handed a reduced majority to Putin’s ruling United Russia party.

35 year old Russian blogger and political activist Alexei Navalny vowed one million people would attend the next anti-Putin rally but the opposition has yet to announce when this will happen.


Gorbachev’s call

The last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, also called on Putin to quit, just as he had done Dec. 25, 1991 when the USSR collapsed exactly two decades ago. “I’m happy that I have lived to see the people waking up. This raises big hopes,” the 80-year-old Gorbachev said on Echo of Moscow radio. He urged Putin to follow his example and give up power peacefully, saying Putin would be remembered for the positive things he did if he stepped down now.
