Putin tells rally: 'We have won, glory to Russia'
Vladimir Putin has declared victory in Russia's presidential elections, returning for a third term after four years as prime minister.
Exit polls and preliminary results gave him about 60% of the vote.
Mr Putin told supporters at a rally in central Moscow they had won in an open and honest battle.
But opposition groups have reported widespread fraud, with many people said to have voted more than once.
