Photo of the Day

FILE - In this Tuesday, May 8, 2012 file photo Russian socialite and TV host Ksenia Sobchak, center, daughter of the late St. Petersburg mayor, Anatoly Sobchak, and Russian parliament member Ilya Ponomarev, second left, walk with protesters in downtown Moscow, a day after Putin's inauguration.“I’m Ksenia Sobchak, and I’ve got something to lose. But I’m here.” This is what the 30-year-old blond socialite and TV personality said when she began her unlikely foray into political activism by taking the stage at a huge anti-Putin rally in December. Once considered untouchable because of her family’s close personal ties to President Vladimir Putin, Sobchak has since found that she does indeed have something to lose, as her apartment has been raided by police and she has been called in for interrogation. It has been a quick change of fortune for Russia’s It Girl, who like many Russians of her generation experienced a civic awakening after many years of political passivity.
