An opposition supporter carries a portrait of president Vladimir Putin in an apparent reference to the three members of the punk band Pussy Riot sentenced for two years in prison for performing an anti-Putin song inside Moscow's main cathedral, during a protest in Moscow, Saturday, Sept. 15, 2012. Thousands of protesters marched across downtown Moscow on Saturday in the first major rally in three months against President Vladimir Putin, while defying the Kremlin's ongoing efforts to crackdown on opposition.
