Russians march to support Bolotnaya Prisoners

As the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics nears, thousands call on the Kremlin to release the 'Bolotnaya Prisoners.'

    This Friday marks the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics.

    It's an event that Russian president, Vladimir Putin, has taken a keen interest in.

    But on Sunday, tens of thousands of people marched through the streets of Moscow, demanding freedom for political prisoners.
