Moscow: Some 500 people have rallied in
central Moscow to demand the resignation of Prime Minister
Vladimir Putin and political reform.

Opposition activists from left-wing and liberal groups
gathered at the statue to the 19th Century Russian poet
Alexander Pushkin, known for his anti-government stance, in a
rare opposition protest allowed by the Moscow authorities.

Anti-government activists have held dozens of rallies in
Moscow in the past months but most of them were unsanctioned
and were broken up by police.
