Russian protesters turn to street art
Updated April 13, 2012 00:51:00
Russians are voicing their frustrations at the country’s leadership and risking jail by painting political graffiti in the streets of Moscow.

 More than a month after Vladamir Putin won a presidential vote beset by allegations of widespread fraud, Russia’s opposition is sputtering - but the voices of protest can still be found all over Moscow on the walls of buildings everywhere, as street art in the Russian capital goes political.

Taking their inspiration from the most famous street artist of them all, Britain’s Banksy, many in Russia are risking jail to get their message out.
