    Russians will go to the polls next Sunday to chose their next president. Oppostion activists are once again getting ready to take to streets of Moscow, this time with the intention of forming a human chain around the city centre.
     
    What has united the opposition is the candidacy of Vladimir Putin, the prime minister.
