Vladimir Putin booed at Moscow martial arts fight

Posted on: November 22, 2011


The boos and whistles that greeted the Russian prime minister when he stepped into the ring and took the microphone at a martial arts event in Moscow on Sunday may have given him a shock.

They come amid a sense of fatigue with Putin in the run-up to the March presidential election which is almost certain to give him at least six more years as Kremlin leader.

In video footage posted on the Internet, fans can be heard shouting and whistling as Putin is handed the microphone in the ring of Olympiysky Stadium. Allowing just a blink of bewilderment as he peers around the stadium, Putin presses on to congratulate fighter Fyodor Yemelyanenko’s victory over an American rival. One fan screams “leave” as Putin speaks.
