Putin accuses Clinton of encouraging protesters 

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has accused U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton of encouraging and supporting the protesters in Russia.

By describing Russia's parliamentary election as rigged, Putin says Clinton "gave a signal" to his opponents.

"They heard this signal and with the support of the U.S. State Department began their active work," Russian state news agencies quoted Putin as saying.

Putin on Thursday warned that those working for foreign governments to influence Russian politics would be held to account.
