Tens of thousands of protesters took to the streets of Moscow and other Russian cities on December 10 to demand an end to Vladimir Putin's rule and to protest about alleged violations during last week's parliamentary elections, which gave a slim majority to the ruling United Russia party. Police have estimated that 25,000 people are assembled at Moscow's Bolotnaya Square, while other estimates have put the figure at around 70,000. Earlier, thousands also braved low temperatures in the Siberian city of Novosibirsk to protest against the elections.
