Moscow nationalist rally hears attack on Putin party
An annual rally of radical nationalists in Moscow has cheered a fierce condemnation
of the ruling party by a leading anti-corruption campaigner.

Alexei Navalny, one of Russia's most popular bloggers, told a crowd of some 7,000 that United Russia was "the party of crooks and thieves".

Speaking to reporters, he defended his attendance at an event where racist slogans were chanted by the crowd.

He said the rally was an outlet for anger at the government.

It was held on Russia's National Unity Day, a public holiday introduced in 2005 to replace the Soviet celebration of the 1917 Russian Revolution.

The gathering was sanctioned by the authorities but confined to a district on the outskirts of the Russian capital, Lyublino.

Russia holds parliamentary and presidential elections over the next five months which Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and his allies are widely expected to win.

Wiki says this re the white, yellow and black flag:

The "coat of arms flag", erroneously called "Romanov dynastic flag": the official national flag of the Russian Empire from 1858 to 1883. The flag is currently being used by Russian Nationalists and Monarchists.
