You knew that it was coming.
At some point protesters were going to make a statement in full view of the Kremlin, and today on the morning of February 1, 2012 they have accomplished something not yet seen in this battle of wits, words and ideas.
Those working in the Kremlin can’t miss this. The Kremlin is not the ordinary workplace for either President Medvedev or Prime Minister Putin but it is the most important symbol in all of Russia. Lots of people work inside the Kremlin every day and it will be interesting to see how long the sign remains in place at the top of a building across the plaza.
So far there have been no arrests.
