An activist of Ukrainian group Femen writes a text on the back of her fellow member in a flat as they prepare for an action at the Sunday's presidential election in Moscow, March 3, 2012. Vladimir Putin sought a convincing victory in Russia's presidential election on Sunday to strengthen his hand in dealing with the biggest opposition protests since he rose to power 12 years ago. Critics question the legitimacy of a vote they say is skewed to help the former KGB spy return to the Kremlin after four years as prime minister, and are threatening to step up protests that began after a disputed parliamentary poll in December.
