Russians take protests online

Russia is gearing up for more protests in the wake of December’s controversial elections as demonstrators turn to newer forms of technology to try to prevent Putin’s re-election in March’s presidential poll. The country’s opposition rallies have grown rapidly, much like those in the Arab world, in large part due to the power of internet. Social-networking sites have become an important tool in raising money and support for anti-Kremlin causes. Al Jazeera’s Neave Barker reports from Moscow.

    I am an Indian, and I believe that the Russians should respect Putin, who has actually done a lot in his tenure…His reign has brought prosperity to Russia as it was cash strapped earlier, I request all my Russian friends to please vote for him, he is the one who will bring back the lost glory of your nation. I love Russia and I respect Vladimir Putin

    Al-Jazeeara is so very interested in flaming protest in Russia. All the scary stories about supposed oppression, while there is non to show. No internet censorship, no restrictions on donations to political causes, only FUD. A few tens of thousands of people that gathered under different flags for 2 demonstrations under slogan ‘for honest elections’ does not make for a ‘Russian spring’ or any other ‘revolution’ so desired by western msm and Al-Jazeera.
