Russia Elections

Presidential candidate and Leader of the Yabloko party Grigory Yavlinsky speaks to the media in Moscow, Russia, Monday, Jan. 23, 2012. Yavlinsky the leader of Russia's leading liberal party said Monday that election officials' refusal to clear his candidacy for March's presidential election reflects the government's fear of genuine competition. Yavlinsky said authorities want to prevent him from challenging Prime Minister Vladimir Putin's bid to extend his 12-year rule by reclaiming the presidency. He said other contenders are only nominal rivals who are following the Kremlin's guidance. (AP Photo/Alexander Zemlianichenko)
