Russian Interior Ministry troops detain a participant during a rally organised on social networks against the results of parliamentary elections in St. Petersburg December 5, 2011. Vladimir Putin's ruling party clung to a much reduced majority in parliament on Monday after an election that showed growing weariness with the man who has dominated Russia for more than a decade and plans to return to the presidency next year.
