OCCUPY MOSCOW Protesters gathered in Bolotnaya Square in Russia’s capital on Saturday. Organizers say between forty and 80,000 Russians demonstrated against recent parliamentary election results which observers, including former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev, have dismissed as fraudulent. Protesters chanted “Putin is a Thief” and “Russia Without Putin” in the largest anti-goverment action since the fall of the Soviet Union.
