Tens of thousands people in the Russian capital, Moscow, defied freezing temperatures and police warnings to demand the release of Kremlin critic Alexey Navalny, who was arrested last week.
He was detained after returning from Germany where he was treated for a near-fatal poisoning.
More than 3,000 people were arrested, including Navalny's wife.
For Navalny's supporters, corruption is a major source of their discontent.
And the constant crackdowns on their movement is, they said, an attempt to silence them.
