Opposition supporters rally across Russia, Navalny detained at unsanctioned protest in Moscow”

As the crowd swelled, police swept in.

He was one of more than 1,600 people that police detained during the protests.

He even has the power to remove ministers, such as the former economy minister Alexei Ulyukayev who opposed Rosneft's resale of oil company Bashneft.Ulyukayev was arrested a year ago at Rosneft's headquarters, caught accepting a bribe that he said was a setup.

Many told the media they were inspired by the events in Armenia, where a nationwide campaign of civil disobedience caused the long-time leader of the small Eastern European state to step down. Images from the Moscow protest showed pro-Kremlin Cossacks beating protesters with leather whips.

In a YouTube video viewed by almost 3 million people ahead of the protests, the 41-year-old lawyer said 53 million Russians didn't vote for Putin in March and their interests need to be taken into consideration.

But while thousands took to the streets, the Kremlin was getting ready for Putin's inauguration on Monday in a ceremony that will likely be heavy on pomp and circumstance.

The 65-year-old Putin, who has ruled Russian Federation for nearly two decades, was re-elected for a fourth Kremlin term in March.

Putin critic Alexei Navalny had only just begun to speak when he was snatched from the stage in Moscow. Putin has dismissed Navalny, who was barred from running in the presidential election on what he said was a trumped-up pretext, as a troublemaker bent on sowing chaos on behalf of Washington.

When police tried to stop the unsanctioned march, protesters pelted them with eggs and water bottles, an AFP reporter said.
