A banner saying Putin, Go Away! was hung atop of the house opposite the Kremlin.

      The banner hid a graffiti poster and was a yellow-coloured piece of canvas with the criss-crossed face of Vladimir Putin on it.

      Solidarnost' movement acknowledged responsibility for the action. The banner is said to be the largest in the entire history of public protests in Russia. A little more than an hour later the police took the banner down.

      Meanwhile, it was reported that LiveJournal community has warmed towards the current Prime Minister. It is quite clear that there will be no easy going on March 4. Putin himself believes that the second round of elections is feasible, while Mikhail Prokhorov who calls himself the "main anti-Putin" is convinced there will be second round, and that it will be him, Prokhorov, who reaches the second stage.
