'Sell Your Mansion, Build a Road' — Russia Rallies Against Corruption

More than one thousand Russians were arrested after a wave of anti-corruption protests swept the country on Sunday.

The demonstrations were coordinated by opposition politician Alexei Navalny after he accused Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev of channeling bribes through non-profit organizations and building a collection of yachts and lavish mansions.

In many cities, including the Russian capital, demonstrators gathered despite being refused a protest permit by city authorities.
