Moscow protest against Putin win sees drop in support10 March 2012 Last updated at 18:04 GMT Help
Protests have been held in Russia over Vladimir Putin's presidential election victory, but turnout in Moscow was sharply down on earlier rallies.Between 10,000 and 20,000 people lined an avenue near the Kremlin, compared to crowds of 100,000 in December.Demonstrators heard calls not to recognise Mr Putin's re-election because of alleged widespread fraud.Foreign states have accepted Mr Putin's election, but observers said the poll had been skewed in his favour.Daniel Sandford reports from Moscow.
The bigger and more important win secured by Putin is not a poll victory but the rather the recognition in poll honesty and integrity. Which is a more significantly meaningful victory for Putin. Now his opponents and the western power can not stir much shit with him nor destabilize Russia with accusations of poll fraud.
