It seems the Russians aren't happy with the way the elections turned out. Many thousands turned out for this demonstration, one protest had 120,000 but when Putin backers had their own rally only about 15,000 showed up and some admitted they had been asked to by authorities. That made me think he probably did steal the election. At least the police didn't bother the protesters, that would of probably started a riot.
