Russian nesting doll

A vendor displays a traditional Matryoshka doll or Russian nesting doll, bearing the faces of Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev at a souvenir market in St. Petersburg. Opinion polls indicate that Putin, who said on Saturday he would seek a return to the presidency after nearly four years as prime minister, is much more popular than his potential rivals and all but certain to win next March's presidential election.
