An exiled former Soviet dissident has returned to Moscow, hoping to run for president in March, and claiming the KGB is back in power.
Vladimir Bukovsky is a virulent opponent of President Vladimir Putin.
It is his first trip to Moscow since Mr Putin took power, and only his third since going into exile in 1976.
He told a crowd of supporters in Moscow that he hoped to build support for the opposition in Russia, and to bolster democracy by ending political apathy.
He also said he feared a return to Soviet times, with the KGB, under its new guise as the FSB, back in control.
