    Russian police detain a participant during an opposition protest demanding fair elections in central Moscow March 5, 2012. Thousands of protesters chanting "Russia without Putin" took to the streets of Moscow and St Petersburg on Monday to challenge Vladimir Putin's victory in a presidential election which international monitors said was unfair. The police action followed a rally in Moscow that drew about 20,000 protesters angry over a campaign slanted in Putin's favor and reports of widespread violations in Sunday's ballot. 12,000 police were deployed to ensure order.

    Swedish CV90

    Stridsfordon 90 utvecklades i grunden för att möta krigsgångsförband och attackhelikoptrar i övre norrland. Dess relativt låga vikt samt utformningen av bandaggregatet ger mycket god framkomlighet i snö och myrmark.

    Nice pix, all!


    [IMG]http://i41.*******.com/a26xl0.jpg[/IMG]
    Former Russian special serviceman Sergei Vasilenko poses for a photograph in the centre of Moscow February 20, 2012. Wounded in Afghanistan and an 18-year veteran of Russia's elite Alfa counter-terrorist forces, Sergei Vasilenko considers himself a patriot. Which is why, when his bosses at the Federal Security Service - successor to the Soviet KGB - asked him in 2010 to investigate corruption, he jumped at the chance. The problem, Vasilenko now says, was that his new chiefs at the Federal Tax Service didn't want him to do his job properly. Vasilenko's experience opens a window into what even Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, bidding for a third Kremlin term, calls Russia's "systemic" corruption. It's a malaise that Putin's political opponents say has flourished during the prime minister and former president's 12 years as Russia's most powerful leader. Vasilenko says his probe, into suspected fraud involving tax officials in Moscow, met a wall of silence and he was soon out of a job. The Federal Tax Office said it had investigated Vasilenko's allegations but declined further comment. Picture taken February 20, 2012.
