The European Court of Human Rights has ordered the Russian government to compensate chess grandmaster and Putin critic Garry Kasparov euros for his arrest at a 2007 protest.
Garry Kasparov, founder of the United Civil Front, is known for his outspoken political opposition to President Vladimir Putin.
Large crowds gathered outside the Moscow court to hear the verdict. A number of people were arrested, including opposition leader and former chess champion Garry Kasparov.
Russian political activist (and grand chessmaster) Garry Kasparov doesn't think it's a sure bet that Vladimir Putin finishes out his current term.
