BBC News - Russia activists erect anti-Putin banner facing Kremlin

Russian opposition activists have erected a giant banner opposite the Kremlin saying "Putin go away".

The banner could be seen for some hours on the roof of a building on the opposite bank of the Moscow River, before it was taken down.

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is tipped to win the presidential election on 4 March. He had two terms as president, in 2000-2008.

Fraud allegations marred December's parliamentary poll won by his party.

An activist group called Solidarity says it put up the banner.
