Opposition supporters protest across the street from the presidential administrations building in downtown Moscow, early Tuesday, May 8, 2012, a day after Vladimir Putin's inauguration. Vladimir Putin took the oath of office in a brief but regal Kremlin ceremony on Monday, while on the streets outside thousands of helmeted riot police prevented hundreds of demonstrators from protesting his return to the presidency.
