Thousands demonstrate in Moscow against Putin's fascist regime

The massive electoral fraud has not convinced anyone it seems. The Communists specially, who were persuaded of having more popular support than Putin's conservative-fascist United Russia party, according to pre-election polls and previous electoral results, have been leading the protests against massive vote rigging through the huge North Eurasian state. 

Gazeta talks of 8000, Amnesty International of 300 arrests (protesting without permit is illegal in Russia), other media of the vague thousands

Whatever the case, such a sudden and numerous protest in the center of Moscow is rare and the strong collapse of United Russia's reported votes, even after electoral fraud, is a clear sign that the iron grip of Putin is weakening.
