Thousands gathered in Moscow in support of opposition activists who were arrested at last year's May 6th rally on Bolotnaya Square, in a manifestation during Putin's entrance into office.

The opposition rally on Moscow’s Bolotnaya Square marked the anniversary of an antigovernment protest that ended in mass arrests on May 6, 2012.

There are still 27 activists detained from last year’s rally that protested Vladimir Putin’s return to presidency.
A placard on the main stage read “Freedom for the Prisoners of May 6,” a phrase the crowd chanted along with “Russia will be free”.
