MOSCOW, Russia (Tue, Jun 12) – Thousands of Russians have joined the march against President Vladimir Putin Tuesday despite the threat of fines the size of their annual pay and MET office warning of showers, thunderstorms and strong winds in Moscow.

According to organizers; more than 20,000 have already gathered on Moscow's scenic Pushkin Square under a heavy rain for a protest march. Organizers believe that about 30,000 – 40,000 more will come out to join the rally. The procession will be held at the Boulevard Ring and finished the rally on the prospect of Sakharov.

The Moscow police department said "up to 10,000" had set off on demonstrations at 1:00 pm (0900 GMT) that was due to conclude with a mass rally against Putin's rule.
