Tens of thousands of demonstrators rallied in cities across Russia on Saturday to protest alleged vote fraud in recent parliamentary elections and to call for the removal of the officials responsible. More than 120,000 people had gathered in Moscow’s central Sadova Prospect by 4 pm (1200 GMT), organizers said.

There was a strong police presence, with security personnel using metal detectors to vet demonstration participants before allowing them into the sanctioned protest site.

Protesters shouted anti-government slogans and called for the ouster of Vladimir Churov, the Central Election Commission chief, for his alleged ineffective control of the December 4 parliamentary elections considered by the opposition to have been flawed by vote-tampering.

The Moscow demonstration was peaceful, with almost no conflict between demonstrators and police.
