Tens of thousands of people turned out for a protest in central Moscow on Monday marking one year since a demonstration ahead of Vladimir Putin's Kremlin inauguration ended in mass arrests, organisers said.

"The whole square is full. There are tens of thousands of us," prominent opposition figure Boris Nemtsov told a huge sea of people crammed into Bolotnaya Square across the Moscow river from the Kremlin. Police however said only 6,000 were present at the start.
