Russians chanted “Putin out!” today at the massive protests in Moscow.
Authorities estimated that 100,000 turned out at the protest but CNN reported only around 25,000 protesters.
There were protests in several other cities. FOX News reported 10,000 at the protest in St. Petersburg.
Tens of thousands of Russians turned out in central Moscow and across the country Saturday to protest what they believe were rigged parliamentary elections.
United Russia, the party of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, suffered big losses in the election, but retained its parliamentary majority. On Saturday, protesters chanted “Putin out,” according to a correspondent from state-run RIA Novosti news agency.
