Some 500 people have rallied in central Moscow to demand the resignation of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and political reform.

Opposition activists from left-wing and liberal groups gathered at the statue to the 19th Century Russian poet Alexander Pushkin, known for his anti-government stance, in a rare opposition protest allowed by the Moscow authorities. Anti-government activists have held dozens of rallies in Moscow in the past months but most of them were unsanctioned and were broken up by police.
