Thousands of protesters have marched through the Russian capital Moscow, in the first big opposition rally against President Putin for three months.

They shouted anti-Putin slogans and demanded freedom for three women from the jailed punk band Pussy Riot.

Mr Putin has taken a tough line against the opposition since he began a third term as president this year.

The protesters accuse him of being bad for democracy.
