In Moscow, where more than 700 protesters were arrested, human rights figures called for an investigation into why people claiming to be Cossacks were allowed to assist the police crackdown.

Activists staged rallies in the cities of Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Irkutsk, Barnaul, and Krasnoyarsk.

Independent monitoring group OVD-Info said almost 1,600 people had been detained by police in 26 cities. In St. Petersburg, hundreds walked down Nevsky Prospekt, the city's central thoroughfare.

There was a objective to these rallies before the election but have they gone stale? Authorities in many places, including Moscow, denied permits.

Protesters chanted "shame" and "Putin is a thief" while marching through the capital city, carrying placards or Russian flags. He spent two months in jail past year after being detained at anti-Putin rallies.

Opposition leader Alexei Navalny, who stood behind the protests, as well as his associate Nikolai Lyaskin were detained in Moscow. "Do you live in Russian Federation or not?" "The sum of our efforts must match the efforts of those evil people, and then, gradually, we will be able to bend the situation in our direction".

Ahead of the protests, supporters of Navalny were detained in six Russian cities, being held on charges of violating public assembly laws and resisting arrest.

It's not that far from the centre and he was happy to show up there last Monday, when thousands turned up to protest against government attempts to shut down the messaging app Telegram. "He has been doing it for 18 years and has done nothing good for it", said Moscow demonstrator Dmitry Nikitenko.

"Leaders who are secure in their own legitimacy don't arrest their peaceful opponents for protesting", she wrote. Putin has dismissed Navalny, who was barred from running in the presidential election on what he said was a trumped-up pretext, as a troublemaker bent on sowing chaos on behalf of Washington.

Still, despite having no access through state TV, he has built a following by producing viral videos spotlighting corruption among Russia's ruling elite and describes street protests as the only way to put pressure on the Kremlin.

Navalny has called nationwide demonstrations several times in the past year, and their turnout has rattled the Kremlin.

Fatigue with Putin is another factor motivating the opposition.

The 65-year-old has governed Russian Federation for 18 years, serving six years as Prime Minister from 2008 to 2012 and the rest as President.
