A day after Vladimir Putin won the Russian presidency with what officials called an “overwhelming number of votes,” thousands protested the victory in Moscow’s Pushkin Square.
Riot police soon broke up the protests, some of them using violence, the Associated Press reports. Dozens of participants were arrested, including prominent opposition leaders Alexei Navalny and Sergei Udaltsov. Many protesters were put in police vans.
The demonstration was fueled by reports of ballot fraud during Sunday’s presidential election, including multiple voting, abuses of absentee ballots and obstruction of election observers. Golos, a monitoring group, said it had received 3,000 complaints of voter irregularities.
