Moscow's 'Great White Ring'

Wet weather failed to dampen the festive atmosphere that accompanied the "Great White Ring" demonstration, which was held in Moscow on February 26. Organizers say as many as 34,000 supporters of the so-called "white" protest movement lined up to form a human chain along the Russian capital's inner ring road. The event was the latest in a series of protests against Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, who is widely tipped to return as president in an election next week.
